On Sunday September 22nd 2019, a group of Tigrinya-speaking refugees were welcomed into the Burnaby Village Museum, whose staff were super excited to have visitors on such a rainy day! The group exchanged knowledge and culture with the hosts and learned many things about Canada in just a few hours. They had the opportunity to experience what it felt like living a hundred years ago in Burnaby. Out of all the exhibits on display, the group was most interested in the tram. It was the highlight of their visit. They also had a good laugh when one of them mistook an old washing machine for a pasta maker. The group enjoyed the day, made new friends among the local folks and from the community, were glad to have participated in this community connections activity and are looking forward to more activities of this nature.
