Sobriety Celebration 2017
Snuneymuxw and Tillicum Lelum members joined together this year for the annual “Sobriety Celebration” held at the Neutral Zone on Franklyn Street, November 16, 2017. Approximately 65 people gathered to honor family and friends who has demonstrated strength, honesty and courage while striving to live a clean and sober life.
We would like to extend a special thank you to Health Center staff who contributed their time and dedication towards the success of this event!
The M.C. for the evening was Wayne Johnny who invited Gary Manson to open the evening with a cultural prayer song.
A very special “thank you” to chefs Mike and Cory; the meal was absolutely delicious! A Sobriety Celebration Cake completed the festive dinner. Throughout the evening, door prizes were presented and appreciated by all the lucky winners.
The evening closed as Gary Manson sang and drummed a closing prayer respectful and sacred of the “Coast Salish People.”
The Health Center wishes to thank everyone who participated in another very special Sobriety Celebration.
