November Speaker Series and AGM - November 29th

November Speaker Series and AGM - November 29th

My history teacher always told me that if we don’t study the past, we will never be able to understand the future. From a legacy perspective, we tell our stories for ourselves and as a gift to future generations.

Stories connect the past and present to the future. They can awaken future generations to their potential and they honour and give thanks to the people who helped create the communities we enjoy today.
