JUNE 2021: Pride month!

Hey everyone! Many communities in Canada and around the world are celebrating diversity throughout June 2021 as PRIDE month.

We thought we would take this opportunity to highlight some PRIDE activities, resources, and organizations for you here:

Let us know in the comments what’s going on in your community for Pride month!

Remember Together, Apart…

Town of Devon, AB (website)

Hey everyone, as we observe Remembrance Day, let’s keep each other safe by staying apart. Consider watching ceremonies online, booking a time to visit the Okanagan Military Museum, or checking out more local information here:

You can visit the Legion website here to see other ways to support and observe Remembrance Day while keeping a safe social distance apart (at least 2m or 6 feet).

Spook-tacular Live-Stream!

Hey everyone, this week’s social distancing reminder is an invitation to the Nelson Cares LIVE-STREAM SPOOKTACULAR happening next Friday night!

Hi folks,

In honour of Community Inclusion Month, we are going to try something different this Spook-tober…

We are going to have our most excellent DJ, Lucas, return for a live streaming Halloween music event on Friday October the 30th! The event will take place on zoom, and the log in is the same for any self-advocacy meeting (see poster below) Lucas will be sharing tunes while the rest of us can use the chat bar to converse and the video to show off our costumes and react together. Maybe folks will feel like dancing in their house or just listening is fine too.

Either way, please feel free to dress up, dance in your room, or have a little house party with your pod and enjoy the tunes together!

Hope to see you there, it begins at 6:00.
