I hope you were able to join us for Richmond Hill’s first ever Virtual Canada Day Event. Traditionally Richmond Hill hosts an award winning live and in person Canada Day events but given the COVID-19 circumstances, this year’s event was held virtually. It was a great success.
It was clear that even COVID-19 did not stop us from celebrating Canada as many folks tuned in to watch. During the show the presentation of our national anthem with so many different citizens joining in virtually was a highlight for me!
Both the morning and evening shows are still available on our website so if you missed it on Canada Day you can still watch by visiting RichmondHill.ca/CanadaDay
While in between Richmond Hill’s morning and afternoon Canada Day show I had the pleasure of virtually attending the Dawoodi Bohra of Canada’s Virtual Canada Day Flag Raising. The event featured a simultaneously flag raising event across Canada, from Montreal to Vancouver and Richmond Hill’s mosque hosted this event.
Richmond Hill is home of the oldest Bohra Mosque in Canada (located at 8929 Bayview Ave.) and I was happy to join all of the Canadian Dawoodi Bohra Jamaats on Behalf of Anjman e Burhani Toronto, to bring greetings and wish all a very safe and happy Canada Day!
