The Town of Newmarket is inviting the community to join, commemorate, honour, and reflect as we observe the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation on September 30. Kim Wheatley - Shawanaga First Nation Reserve Anishinaabe Ojibway grandmother who carries the Spirit name Head or Leader of the Fireflower and is Turtle clan - will be present to offer words, perform hand drumming and prayers.
We welcome attendees to wear an orange shirt to honour the children who survived Residential Schools and remember those who did not.
Parking is available on site at Fairy Lake or you can choose to park anywhere along the Nokiida Trail, or at the Town Office at 395 Mulock Drive.
