“Memengwaa” book reading by local Indigenous author Dorothy Ladd (copies of the book are available for purchase and signing)
Everyone will gather for a short group walk to the Walkerton Library front steps to honour, remember, and pay our respects to the survivors of Residential Schools, and those who never made it home. As in previous years, items may be left on the steps if you wish (natural items preferred such as paper, rocks, flowers, etc.)
Parking is available in the public lot directly north of the Market Garden park at 305 Catherine Street, Walkerton.
