WE WILL BE CLOSED, BUT WE'RE STILL AWESOME!!!
We will be closed on September 27, 2022, for a staff-appreciation, team-building field trip.
Wednesday, September 28 and Thursday September 28, we will be open from 10am - 5pm.
We also will be closed on Friday, September 30th for Nation Day for Truth and Reconciliation, also known as Orange Shirt Day.
The day honours the children who never returned home and Survivors of residential schools, as well as their families and communities and we encourage our community to pause and reflect on the past, present and future of Canada's relationship to our indigenous friends and neighbours.
"The annual Orange Shirt Day on September 30th opens the door to global conversation on all aspects of Residential Schools. It is an opportunity to create meaningful discussion about the effects of Residential Schools and the legacy they have left behind. A discussion all Canadians can tune into and create bridges with each other for reconciliation. A day for survivors to be reaffirmed that they matter, and so do those that have been affected. Every Child Matters, even if they are an adult, from now on."
