WE CAN at Surrey Vasaikhi Festival


The "We Can" Coalition joined the South Asian Community at one of the
largest events of the year in the City of Surrey at the Annual Vaisakhi
Parade on April 12, 2008. Vaisakhi celebrates the birth of the Sikh
identity which was created in 1699.  It also marks the beginning of the
harvest season in the Sikh calendar.  The parade is for everyone and
this year drew a  crowd in excess of 100,000 people.  The public came
out to watch the parade and enjoyed  free food along the route.  "We Can" volunteers had the opportunity to reach out to the masses with the
campaign's goals and vision.
