Langley’s International Festival Society’s fifth annual Multicultural Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony held at the Langley Golf and Banquet Centre is being hailed as a success by organizers, both in attendance and nominations.
Dignitaries who gathered to celebrate cultural diversity in the community included Township of Langley mayor Jack Froese, who was joined by councillors Angie Quaale and Petrina Arnason, as well as City of Langley deputy mayor Jack Arnold and City councillors Paul Albrecht, Gayle Martin and Rudy Storteboom.
Representing the Langley School District was trustee Rosemary Wallace.
The Township was also represented by cultural services manager Peter Tulumello, libraries manager David Thiessen, and Muriel Arnason Library’s community librarian Dr. Sarwan Singh Randhawa.
The society received several nominations in each of the four categories — Youth, Seniors, Education, and Community Services Diversity awards.
