Mark your calendars! On September 30, 2022, the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, we are excited to host “Mapping the Ground We Stand On.” This is an interactive workshop created by the PWRDF. It explores Indigenous presence and Settler arrival on the map of Turtle Island/Canada at first contact. An informative video can be found HERE, and you can also visit their website for further description at https://pwrdf.org/mapping-exercise. The event will run at St Paul’s on Friday, Sept 30 beginning at 1:30pm. Registration opens September 15, 2022.
Grovenor Community League is hosting their Fall Fest this coming Saturday, September 17, from 4:00-9:00 pm, and they are looking for help with running the event. Although many of us come from different areas of the city, being present in the community where our building is speaks volumes to residents here. Come out to enjoy the food trucks, music, beer and wine gardens, and activities planned for the evening. All volunteers get a free meal and beverage – it can’t be a success without many hands! Please review the available slots HERE and join Michelle in serving our neighbours.
