A magician was on site, and children were able to bounce off some energy on a selection of inflatable games. A free hot dog meal was offered to visitors, and there were plenty of treats and activities provided by sponsors of the birthday bash, which went on into the night.

Une Affaire de Famille director Gabrielle Limoges said she was especially happy to see all the families taking part in the event, which aimed to not only highlight the organization’s exceptional work over the past three decades, but to provide an opportunity for people to come together across generations and cultures.
