Playing Out – Building Community Through Front Yard PlayWhen: Saturday, May 27th, 10:00am – 1:00pm
Where: 6th Ave North
What: Research shows the benefits of playing outside, and we’ve seen firsthand how our children, families, and community have benefited from front yard play.
Inspired by the ‘Playing Out’ movement in the UK (playingout.net). We are a group of neighbours who are passionate and dedicated to front yard play, so we wanted to invite you and your kids to our front yards as we host our first ‘Playing Out’ event. The plan is to block off the street and play! Just like our daily front yard play, this is a laid back event. You bring your kids, your bikes, scooters, and anything else you want to play with. We will provide the sidewalk chalk and bubbles!
Come out to play and be inspired to start playing in your own front yard! This event hosted in collaboration with the City Park Community Association.
*note: event will be cancelled if there are unfavourable weather conditions
This event is part of NatureCity Festival 2017. Check out the full festival listing at http://wildaboutsaskatoon.org/
Please join us in the unveiling of the important Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and distribute to your friends, family and public in general.
Saskatoon Tribal Chief Felix Thomas and Saskatoon Police Chief Clive Weighill cordially invite you to the unveiling of our community’s monument to Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls. The unveiling will take place at 11:00 a.m. on Friday May 5, 2017 in the plaza in front of the Saskatoon Police Service Headquarters located at 76 25th Street East, Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
The completion of the monument has been three years in the making. It has involved families of missing and murdered women, Elders, and public consultations. Saskatchewan artist Lionel Peyachew was selected during our final consultation session to create his vision of a monument that will be unveiled during the ceremony. We expect a large gathering of family members, dignitaries, and the public. Following the unveiling all attendees will be invited to a lunch of soup and bannock.
The monument has been jointly funded by the Saskatoon Police Service, Saskatoon Tribal Council and the Province of Saskatchewan. We hope it will serve as a place where families or friends can reflect. It will also provide a starting point for public gatherings or marches that raise awareness of the issue of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls.
