Metis group to celebrate at Chilliwack city hall

Flag raising ceremony held in Chilliwack next week

The Chilliwack Metis Association has two events coming up next week, and has extended an invitation to Metis people throughout the area.

The first event is a Metis flag raising ceremony in Chilliwack. In recognition of the contribution of the Métis people to the exploration and development of British Columbia, the City of Chilliwack will fly the Metis Flag at city hall, Thursday Feb.16 starting at 9:30 a.m.

Accompanied by traditional music and dance, this day co-celebrates with the Manitoba Provincial Holiday, Louis Riel Day. So put on your Métis regalia, grab your sash, and join the group at City Hall.

Then on Saturday, Feb. 18, the group will host their monthly potluck, at 5 p.m. at the OAP Hall 5725 Tyson Road, Sardis (next to Twin Rinks).

Bring a meal preparation of your choice that can serve five, and come out and meet your Metis neighbours!
