Community Awareness

Date: Thursday, May 19, 2022
Time: 12-4:00 PM
Location: SNGRDC Head Office

This event is an opportunity for Six Nations organizations supporting the community to showcase their products and services. Community members are invited to attend the events throughout the month (TBD based on Covid-19 limitations). SNGRDC operates special events during Community Awareness to share available services and create a space for community togetherness. In 2021, SNGRDC ran three separate events, including a drive-thru BBQ, outdoor Prize Bingo and Chiefswood Park offered cabin tours and free watercraft rentals for participants. SNGRDC also hosted an online raffle and matched all proceeds which were then donated to the Six Nations Birthing Centre.
