Uganda Independence Day Celebrations
The Uganda Canadian Association of the Maritimes held the 51st Uganda Independence Day celebrations on Saturday October 5, 2013. The celebrations took place at St. Agnes Church hall in Halifax, and included dinner as well as several performances – including traditional Ugandan dances and fashion show. In addition there was a presentation on the effect of cell phones in Uganda.
The food – mainly Ugandan dishes – was delicious and the performances were delightfully entertaining.
The event was very well attended and among our many guests was the Mayor of Halifax — Mayor Mike Savage — as well as the MP for Halifax West — The Honourable Geoff Regan.
We all had a good time.
