Talking about residential schools can be tough. These traumatizing and culture-stripping institutions imposed death, abuse and other types of inhumane cruelty onto innocent children. But just because it’s hard doesn’t mean we should shy away from it. The Town of Stewiacke wants to recognize these tragedies annually in tribute to this terrible loss of lives.
Please join Elder Joe Michael for a Sacred Lighting Ceremony to remember all the First Nations children who lost their lives at Residential Schools.
Elder Joe Michael will open with prayers and will speak about the Residential Schools. Elder Joe Michael was a day student at the Shubenacadie Residential School, which closed on 22 June, 1967.
The lights will remain on continuously for four days for the Sacred Lighting and then will be turned on nightly until National Indigenous Peoples Day on 21 June, 2022. Pole banners, a street banner and a scared lighting of the Dennis Park gazebo will highlight our commemoration of this sad part of Canadian history.
On behalf of Town Council I am pleased to invite the citizens of Stewiacke, previous council members and the general public to attend the official opening of our Splash Pad in Dennis Park, June 22 at 1 pm.
We have the privilege to recognize Bill Jones and family for their amazing contribution to the Splash Pad to ensure this vision became a reality. This selfless action embodies Stewiacke Proud.
It is a privilege to recognize the previous Council initial vision of this project and to see the end results though the current Council’s persistence so ensure completion. Thanks you to our staff that combined as a team to see the completion of this project in time for the summer activity.
Everyone in the parade should meet at the Stewiacke Legion by 10:45am. This year we have decided to cancel the banquet and instead we would like to invite the general public or anyone participating in the parade to join us, afterwards, for either a bowl of chilli, soup or hot dog free of charge.
