Important events September 22, 2021

Please see below an important message from Mayor Brenda Chisholm-Beaton regarding two important events on September 22, 2021:
Orange Ribbon Ceremony 5:30pm:
Join us to honor the memories of the many Indigenous children and adults who did not return from the Indian Residential Schools across Canada. After an opening prayer and drumming, together we will tie orange Ribbons to our designated Truth and Reconciliation Tree. We invite the community to continue to tie orange ribbons in the days leading up to September 30th. Ribbons are available inside the Civic Centre at the box office from September 22-29.
Blanket Exercise 6pm-9pm (by registration only):
REGISTRATION LINK: https://forms.gle/rJJZgYhyTH67TpM2A
The Blanket Exercise is an experiential learning tool that helps participants understand how the arrival of European settlers impacted the Indigenous people who had lived here before the colonists arrived. It traces the history of the relationship between them, exploring how and why their relationship was damaged over the years. This interactive workshop teaches us how to reconcile our privileges, our education, our judgment and our unfair stereotypes with the harsh reality experienced by Aboriginal peoples. Reconciliation also calls for personal, group, community and political ACTION. Broadening our own awareness and changing the way we educate is an important step toward healing our broken relationships.
