I got this from Charisse Daley at Pathways Ability Society the other day, looks like a great event.
Mayor Walter Gray has proclaimed October Community Inclusion Month and we want to take this opportunity to express and acknowledge the diversity of our community. So, as we did last year, we are going to form a giant line of people of all types, from all parts of our community, lining the east side of Water Street, beginning in front of City Hall and stretching north up Water Street and around the corner onto Doyle as far as the inclusion chain can go on October 15th starting at 2 pm! We’ll be joined by former BC Premier, Mike Harcourt!
Though we are coordinating this is not a “Pathway’s” event. Please come down and encourage individuals, staff, friends, loved ones, community partners, colleagues etc. to join in on the chain, meet Mike Harcourt. Bring your banners if you choose! Please send on to everyone!
It takes all kinds of people to form the strength of a community. On October15th, let’s show Kelowna EVERYONE matters!
We’ll have coffee, hot chocolate and muffins on hand and we’re inviting all the media down too, to cover the event.
Mayor Gray will read the proclamation, and Mike Harcourt might even say a few words.
**** ALSO don’t forget, Mike Harcourt will be our featured guest at our ‘Evening With Mike Harcourt’ hosted by Phil Johnson at the Mary Irwin Theatre that night, October 15th, from 7pm – 8:30pm, doors open at 6:30pm, presented by Bell Media and Castanet! Admission to the evening event is free but seating will be limited and people will be seated first come first serve.
