May is Asian Heritage Month. It is a time to celebrate the historical presence of Asian Canadian communities, their central place in nation building, and the powerful ways in which they continue to participate in Canadian society today.

Asian Heritage Month is an opportunity for us to learn more about the many achievements and contributions of Canadians of Asian heritage who, throughout our history, have done so much to make Canada the country we know and love.

The theme for Asian Heritage Month 2022 is, “Continuing a legacy of greatness”. This month is a reminder for all Canadians to come together to combat anti-Asian racism and discrimination in all its forms.

Sunday May 8th is Mother’s Day! Different types of Moms like different things on this special day.  Food? (books) Flowers? (books) Chocolate? (books) Clothes? (books) The gift of peace and quiet? (to read books) The gift of being surrounded by family? (books).

Mom can mean different things to different people. Voice of reason, story teller, advice giver, hand holder, shopping buddy, teacher, chef, doctor, artist, therapist, nerve calmer, problem solver, peace keeper, cheerleader, confidant, judge and jury, best friend.  Whatever Mom means to you, it is a gift to cherish and appreciate.
