The Women’s Resource Centre has several events underway this week leading up to the Women’s Memorial March and Red Dress Project. The Centre’s Brodie Hooper explains they have a coloring contest going out to grade 3 and up throughout Flin Flon so one winner per class will be chosen and gift certificates from local businesses will be awarded, various classes are also doing ribbon ties on the chain link fences around the schools to represent missing and murdered Indigenous women and, they’re also doing felt pin workshops in classrooms from grades 6 to 7 led by Elder Margaret. She adds they’re also doing a beaded pin workshop with Rachel Roberts this Saturday from 6 to 8 pm at the Women’s Resource Centre upstairs, it’s a free workshop for mature students and adults but spots are filling up really fast so phone 204-681-3105 to register.
We’ll have more next week on the Memorial March and Red Dress Project which will take place Friday, February 14th at Pioneer Square. The Centre is asking anyone travelling to Prince Albert and back before the 14th to contact them at 204-681-3105 about picking up red dresses at Value Village.
