On October 9, 2017 the UICA celebrated the 20th Thanksgiving Banquet at Sts. Peter & Paul Banquet Hall. It was great day full of surprises and great speeches by UICA members and guests. As the week progresses more pictures and videos will be shared of the event.
A significant portion of our focus is on youths and education. This is because we believe that education lights the pathway to a bright future. If we do not educate our youths, they and our society will grope in darkness. For this reason, from the very beginning, this organization has chosen education as its main focus. Every year, we commit ourselves to provide classroom essentials such as pens, pencils, exercise books, erasers, crayons that every child is equipped with classroom tools he or she needs to participate in learning. Over the years, have received positive feedback gone one step further by providing scholarship of $500 (CAN) annually to five high school students for the duration of their high school education (5 years). The scholarships enhance the learning environment and provide students with a better opportunity to complete high school and to enter a better future. This program has met with high praises from parents, students, principles and the general public. We too are very excited and encouraged by the success of this program thus far. High school graduates who have been helped by our program have gone on to college and teaching career.
Over the years we have provided much needed medical equipment and supplies to the medical clinics.
Much of our capital to fund our projects is derived from our annual Thanksgiving Day Brunch. This banquet occurs on the Canadian Thanksgiving Day holiday, which usually occurs on the second Monday in October, when the weather is still virtuous. The word “Brunch” is a misnomer because the event has over the years evolved into a banquet affair punctuated by exciting family entertainment. We are extending an open invitation to anyone planning to visit Toronto or surrounding area, to plan your visit in October and be wowed by this spectacular event. Other events are planned for Canada’s Victoria Day holiday weekend and August Monday. The UICA’s annual Games Evening social occasion takes place on the Sunday before the Victoria Day holiday (around the third week of May), while the annual UICA picnic takes place on August Monday Holiday (Caribana, but recently called Scotia Caribbean Carnival) weekend. We invite you to these events! Come prepared to meet your long-lost friends and relatives. We extend our gratitude to everyone who helped us in any way over the years. We assure you that we would always strive to remain faithful and worthy of your trust. We look forward to many years serving the people of Union Island.
