Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day


On June 25th 2022, BBBV-Calgary volunteers participated in the organization and smooth running of the Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day at the Cité des Rocheuses. They held several positions hosting and managing activity stations, allowing the community to join together in a warm and welcoming family atmosphere.

Committed to the growth of the Calgary Francophone community, our volunteers lent a hand to the Centre d’Appui Familial (Family Support Centre) and made possible for Francophone families to leave their homes and socialize after a long stretch of the pandemic.

As a vehicle of bonding and solidarity, volunteering allowed everyone to better the event with their diversity and expertise.

A big thank you to our invaluable volunteers for their participation and dedication!
