We are very pleased to inform you about the opening of an exhibit on the Indo-Canadian community in the Kingston region at the City Hall. The exhibit is a part of the “Your Stories, Our Histories” program of the City of Kingston. The exhibit was inaugurated (unveiled) by His Worship Mayor Bryan Paterson on 17th November 2020. Considering ongoing pandemic precautions the event was relatively short and informal and attended by a few members of the ICA executive committee and staff at the City Hall.
The exhibit is a tremendous tribute and a celebration of the Indo-Canadian community’s heritage and significance to the Kingston region. Please do visit this beautiful exhibit, it is prominently mounted in the Clerk’s Corridor in the City Hall.
ICA-Kingston initiated the meditation and relaxation program in partnership with Heartfulness Organization. This program offered four virtual workshops via zoom every Saturday at 11 am for the month of October. The purpose of the workshop was to learn how to meditate and how to relax in a heartfulness way.
