Heritage Day: Embracing Diversity

In celebration of Heritage Day on April 25, Westminster Canterbury Richmond embraced its diverse community with an event organized by the staff of our Diversity Advisory Council.

Attendees explored the tapestry of cultures and traditions showcased by staff, residents and children from our Child Development Center through family trees, photos, cherished family keepsakes and recipes. In addition, Sweet as Sugar Bake Shoppe and Nifty! Nuttery Gourmet Pecans offered delightful treats; the Library of Virginia was on site to provide resources for those seeking to reconnect with their roots; and the Chickahominy tribe shared its artistry and tales of tradition. The event concluded with performances by Jukebox Saturday Night.

Thank you to all members of the Diversity Advisory Council, everyone who participated and our special guests for making this a truly memorable event. Your efforts provided us with another opportunity to gather as a community and celebrate our differences while learning about those things, that at the core, unite us and make us stronger.
