Annual picnic in Jericho- 2016

On Saturday we held our annual picnic in Jericho beach where we have bench dedicated to Andrew.

This was his favourite place with beautiful panoramic view of Vancouver.

Our 3 little ones insisted in setting up their lemonade stand .
My nephew Geof with his wife Morgan, brought with the stand including delicious baking goods made by Morgan.
All is offered by donations.
Number of people walking their dogs & even without pets stopped by.

I am stunned & deeply moved by our kids’ explanation about children living with Autism & ASD. They convey message from their point of view with so such love that people were taking photos & writing info to find out more.

They raised $ 150!!!!
Previously they raised $105.

Now they are even more enthusiastic & set a goal to raise $ 500 by end of summer, this is amazing for Thereon 8 , Harlo 5 year olds & Violet 9, ( she is Ryan’s & Lindsay’s daughter) .
I gave mugs with pins from your anniversary luncheon, they love it.
I would like to ask you, if you know anyone in Tsawwassen or Ladner area with puppies or a family with ASD dog who could come next time they will have stand set up. None of them met autism support dog.

I think this is worthy story for Delta paper, I don’t know if you know anyone that I could approach.

Please don’t think that I am pushing you in any way asking for something.

Pictures are from last Saturday below.

Sincerely
Eva
