Who does your mirror reflect?
Whatever your answer, your reflection is what you see. It’s personal. It’s critiqued. It’s studied. When you are with others, your reflection becomes them - what do they see? What are they echoing? What is your message?
What always seems to ring true is when you help others, you learn about yourself and, inherently, you grow within, you develop and you ultimately reflect in your own amazing way.
On Monday, October 24th, the FCSSC volunteers came to Women’s Community House (WCH), under the guise of the United Way GenNext program, to help celebrate a spook-tacular evening of Halloween fun! GenNext brings people together who share a passion for our city to create meaningful social change by providing community involvement opportunities that impact many non-profit organizations, like WCH, throughout London.
What better way to celebrate the spooky season than with a pumpkin carving party! Although planned for the children, this evening turned out to be a great family-themed party with volunteers and moms helping little ones to carve their pumpkins. Afterward, we roasted the leftover seeds for a tasty treat. Once it got dark enough outside, the pumpkins were proudly displayed and a light was placed inside each one to get the real spooky effect!
What was reflected in an evening such as this? Community involvement that meant being at the heart of a group of passionate and caring people, smiles and excitement, being a part of something, kindred, a glow!
Thank you FCSSC volunteers and Kristina from United Way!
