It was the Lights Festival this past weekend in Montreal. Unfortunately, I couldn’t make it to take some pictures, but Aki, our Volunteer Coordinator, had this to say about her night out with approximately 15 students, staff members and friends of the school:
“It was great! It wasn’t too cold. There were a lot of activities. At first, we saw a slide. We didn’t try it but it looked great. After that, we went to eat sausages on a stick over a fire. Some people tried maple syrup taffy. After that, we went on a ferris wheel. It went around 6 times. It was a little cold but we saw beautiful fireworks at 8pm. They played music too. We had a good time. We went into a bar in the Old Port to keep warm. Then, we watched someone sing on stage and we kept ourselves warm under a heated dome. Finally, we ended the night with dancing inside a big cube with electronic music.”
Meanwhile, I joined Thrivability Montreal‘s second discussion: “What is the role of money in a thrivable organization?”.
The format of the discussion resembled that of a talk show. It was interesting because during the first half of the session, we watched 3 entrepreneurs give their 2 cents about this topic. The event was also a little more special because it was Michelle’s birthday, and so we ended it with a delightful birthday party filled with wine, cake, and catered organic food from Crudessence.
