The Little Brothers and Sisters of Sault Ste. Marie celebrated the amalgamation of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Sault Ste Marie on Sunday, September 29.
The organization is now simply known as Big Brothers Big Sisters Sault Ste Marie.
From 1 - 4 p.m. at the Roberta Bondar Pavilion everyone got involved with Play Day inspired games, inflatables, a Dunk Tank and a BBQ lunch.
Big Brother John Duke, shown above shooting hoops with Little Sister Emma Tackney, age 11, has been volunteering with the organization for over 10 years. That's long enough that Duke has seen Little Brothers grow up and come back to the organization as a Big Brother for someone else in need.
The agency also welcomed the support of the 2013/2014 Soo Greyhounds, who signed autographs and participated in multipe events.
The agency's goal is to bring community awareness to the newly merged organization and the programs that they offer.
