The G.A.L.S. Group age 12 - 18 years hosted a beautiful Valentines Tea in the old council chambers on Feb. 12th to honour 10 elders. They presented them with lovely decorated jars that held scented bath salts and homemade candles. Holly McDonald, from V.I.H.A. also did a presentation on oral health, shared a poem, and gifted all the ladies with dental care items.
On that same night three of our gals supported elders who travelled to Sooke to view the Kuper Island Residential School film, slides by Alex Louie, listened to Elders' personal stories, and witnessed the gathering of artifacts for a cedar blanket. Big thank - you to Siona Thomas who organized bus & driver Perry Lafortune for this event!
