Information sur les billets

La vente de billets pour cet événement est maintenant terminée.


The Heart-Language Celebration is a grazing* party to celebrate the success of the CanIL Heart-Language Ride, through which we raised funds in support of CanIL graduates. The majority of CanIL graduates are destined for Bible translation work among the world's 1700+ remaining minority-language communities. The Ride will have taken place on the previous weekend as part of the Valley GranFondo. The Celebration is for all friends and supporters of Canada Institute of Linguistics, as well as for Team CanIL riders, volunteers and fundraising participants.

(* Grazing means light food and beverages, neither dinner nor dessert; think both savoury and sweet appetizers.)

Reunion Ride! Did you ride in the Heart-Language Ride? Are you a cyclist who would have loved to ride with us this year but couldn't? Would you like to join us next year? Or would you simply like to get out on the road with us? Join us on Saturday, July 29th at 3:00 pm for a Reunion Ride. Details below.


3:00 pm. Reunion Ride. Meet in parking lot of the Fort Langley Evangelical Free Church. We'll go for a ride (25km and 50km options) around Derby Reach and the Fort Langley area before attending the Heart-Language Celebration. All riders welcome! (Please note: this is an unsupported ride. All riders must wear a helmet, and all ride at their own risk.) Reunion riders will finish their ride between 4:30 and 5:30 pm. The interval between the ride and the Celebration is intended for you to clean up and grab a bite to eat in town. There'll be food at the Celebration but not what hungry cyclists might consider a full meal.

7:00 pm. Socializing. Arrive early, enjoy a glass of punch and some time with friends. Plan on some iconic photo opps too!

7:30 pm. Awarding. Expect a short, fun program. We'll tell you a story or three, and we'll give out lots of prizes too. We promise: no long or boring presentations! We're here to celebrate the Riders and the work they're headed for. 

8:30 pm. Connecting. We hope you'll mill around afterwards, and connect with CanIL students, staff and faculty. The coffee and tea will be on. You can even help us finish the punch ... or the dishes!!
