On Friday, June 14th the children took part in an Activity Day as part of the "Our Dreams Matter Too" campaign through the First Nations Caring Society. The children walked to raise awareness for equal opportunities for First Nations across Canada. Afterwards, there were all kinds of fun activities in the back yard. The children, with the help of their families drew their "wishes" on a cloud that is part of a display in our lobby. A letter was sent to the Prime Minister of Canada's office to ensure his responsibility in making sure our dreams have the opportunity to come true. As little as they are, their dreams are big!
