AROUND TOWN: Eating Together dinner in Steveston

Great food, music and laughter were all on the menu for the guests of the second annual Eating Together dinner, hosted by the Steveston Community Society and the City of Richmond at Stevetson Community Centre last Sunday.

Over 100 people attended the event, which wrapped up Touchstone Family Association’s annual Eating Together campaign.

“I think they really enjoyed it,” said Jim Kojima, the president of the Steveston Community Society.

The campaign had been going on for the week leading up to the dinner, raising awareness of the importance of families taking the time to eat together.

“We believe in what Touchstone is doing,” Kojima said.

The dinner proved to be a great way of bringing families together to eat and meet other families in the community.

There was live music by Music Variations, pasta and salad for dinner, which was prepared by Steveston Community Centre staff and board members, and cupcakes for dessert.

“Just about everything was donated this year,” Kojima said.

This includes gift certificates that were given out as door prizes and treats for the kids.

The Steveston Community Society tries to “contribute to things that are going to make Richmond a better place to live and play,” Kojima said.
