Canada’s National Day of Remembrance

December 6, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

December 6th, 2018 marks 29 years since 14 young women lost their lives due to senseless violence at École Polytechnique, Montreal. In their memory and in honour of all women who are living with or have lost their lives to domestic violence, Bernadette McCann House will host its annual December 6th Vigil.

The candlelight vigil will be held on December 6th at 6:00 pm at the Wesley United Church Fellowship Hall, Pembroke. Roses will be laid by various community members. In attendance will be guest speaker Sharp Dopler, Knowledge Keeper and Drummer. As well, the local Boys and Girls Club will participate for the fourth year by presenting a purple ribbon that the youth created.

All are invited to gather on Canada’s National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women. The Vigil will be followed by light refreshments and the opportunity to mingle. For more information please contact Bernadette McCann House at 613-732-7776 or visit www.wsssbmh.org.
