VIDEO: Touching rendition of O Canada welcomes Baroud family

FALL RIVER: As the cake was cut by Wassem Baroud, with wife Nour, children Bodi and Leen, and mother Huda next to him, the crowd at the potluck kitchen party to welcome the Baroud’s broke out into a rendition of O Canada.

It was a very touching moment as those in attendance showed their support for, as Nour called those involved with bringing them to Canada, their “family.”

Here’s a video of O Canada. Watch for photos and the story online this week and in the August issue.
