LETTER: Baha’i celebration shows community’s shared values

The Parksville Qualicum Beach Baha’i communities would like to thank those who joined them in the celebration of the bicentennial anniversary of the birth of Baha’u’llah, founder of the Baha’i faith.

At the celebration, held October 21 and 22 at the McMillan Arts Centre, many residents of the area shared a program of art, dance, storytelling, and music. This event, celebrated around the world, was based on the theme, “Unity in Diversity” and participants of different races and cultures contributed from their backgrounds.

In a time when there is so much disunity it was heartwarming to experience togetherness and shared values with people from Parksville, Qualicum Beach and other Vancouver Island locations.
