杭州同乡会2013年烧烤聚会

  一年一度的夏季烧烤已经成为温哥华杭州同乡会十多年来的传统活动项目。今年选址在北温凯特思海湾公园举办。 太平洋海湾,一水相连祖国的东海杭州湾。 参加今年聚会的杭州老乡有200多人, 有30名来温哥华参加夏令营的杭州大专院校在校生也参加了烧烤聚会。 此次烧烤活动更是一次同乡会会员,杭州老乡以及年轻学生们联络友情和信息交流的聚会。

  周六上午10点, 首批义工已经早早将烧烤炉运到现场, 布置场地, 铺上红色桌布, 挂上"温哥华杭州同乡会"的横幅, 将西瓜,葡萄,玉米,蔬菜色拉,凉面整齐摆放在野餐桌上。 一切准备就绪。 之后, 杭州乡亲和朋友们陆续到来。 三只大型烧烤炉开始烘烤玉米,牛排和香肠。 飘香的烧烤风味和人们的欢声笑语; 周边的鸟语花香和海湾微波荡漾的大自然风光 ; 使人想到钱塘江岸和西湖桃柳树旁的美景。 尤其是听到特别熟悉的乡音, 人们倍感亲切。

   当天中午,风和日丽。 大家一边品尝野餐美味, 一边互相交谈。 同乡会会长杨新才先生所提倡的第一个节目是让每个人认识至少5位新朋友, 同乡会会员中有从事各行各业的专才, 同乡会就是为乡亲朋友们建立一个团结互助的平台,让会员们互相认识互相交流。同乡会的宗旨就是帮助会员们能够安居乐业,愉快地生活在加拿大。 杨会长并代表同乡会对来访的杭州大专院校青年学生们表示热烈欢迎, 鼓励与当地同乡会会员的子女们多些沟通,增进友谊。其中几位来之浙江工商管理学院学习旅游和管理的学生们对加拿大的旅游景点管理及大学留学招生等议题非常关注。 同乡会会员子女中也有正在UBC和SFU读书的在校生, 正好与他(她)们以中英文交替对话互相交流。 聚会中安排的户外娱乐节目如健身舞, 呼拉圈和跳绳比赛, 让大人孩童同乐其中。 15岁以下少年男女生队的拔河比赛牵动了在场所有家长们的心, 一起为孩子们加油。 而来访的杭州大学生队和当地同乡会队的拔河比赛更把聚会的气氛推向高潮。拔河各队男女队员合力相争,各方拉拉队的加油声不断。 最后, 同乡会队以2:0取胜。

  大家流连忘返,不知不觉已经到了下午3点。 自有义工们一起清除垃圾, 收拾烧烤用具。 朋友们互相道别, 相约中秋聚会再见, 杭州同乡会别开生面的烧烤聚会在欢乐中开始, 在愉快中结束。

Day to remember

Having a Hangzhou Friendship Society of Vancouver BBQ party is more than just having fun.
Live a life with whole day classes in Hangzhou. Relaxing in such a fabulous park is luxurious, but in this sweet afternoon, August 3th, Cates Park NV, more than 200 members get together, sharing beautiful scenery, comfy weather, and fantastic views of sea is not that hard. What's more, delicious food also contributes to the happy time.
It is really an honor for every one of us to take part in this big event. For us, the BBQ party is totally a brand new experience, people sitting next to us can be anyone, they came to Vancouver for different reasons, and the whole idea of this party is building communications between us, creating a harmonious atmosphere for all the Chinese from Hangzhou. When we were sitting there surrounded by so many people saying the same dialect, we feel like we were just "HangZhou-Ed".
finishing those nice food, we started to play the game, at that moment, you would suddenly realize that you are really involved in this big family, the outpouring of support and fun has been overwhelming to say the least.
We want to give our biggest appreciations to the host---Hangzhou friendship society of Vancouver, which aims at improving the life of Chinese oversea, your party every year tied all the people closer, and make their friendship firmer and stronger.
Even after we leave Canada, we will keep the feeling in our minds, there are pride, humility, and happy all coursing through our veins at the same time, every day, all day.
