L’Arche at the Lions Game

It was a day for cheering.  There were sixteen places reserved for members of the L’Arche community last Saturday to cheer on the BC Lions as they played (and won!) against the Saskatchewan Roughriders at their last home game of the regular season. Those special reserved seats were made possible thanks to a generous donation from Paul Pineau.

Paul is the son of one of our long-time community members, Evelyn. When asked about the donation, Paul said “L’Arche has done a lot of good… I’ve seen that L’Arche plays a big part in my mother’s life [and] it has played a part in my life as well.” So when Paul received 16 tickets from his company he thought there might be people from L’Arche who would enjoy the big season finale. And they did!

From what we have heard from those who attended the game, it was a great experience all around. Marcos, one of our volunteers described the game.  “The game was fantastic; it was wonderful to experience this …as a community and we had great seats that were right by the end zone so we could see the action up close. Patrick’s excitement throughout the game was so visible and his excitement was contagious, pumping up everyone around us.”

Thank you Paul for giving us this experience!

Here’s a cheer for Paul and for the Lions!

A whole row of L'Arche Lions fans!
