Annual Blanketing Ceremony
Close to 60 families and friends gathered to ‘Welcome’ into the community Snuneymuxw babies born in 2012 and 2013. Of the babies born in those years, five women chose to have their babies take part in the event.
They have been working very hard measuring, cutting, sewing, and dedicating time to creating their child’s quilt. Two women and children were unable to attend Sunday-we missed you Terri and Reggie and Shirley and Nataleen. Please know you were honored in your absence.
The Health Centre would like to thank speaker and Council member Bill Yoachim , Council member Emily Manson, the Snuneymuxw Dance Group, and all the family and friends of the children who came out to celebrate with us.
