The meeting notes for the January 14 meeting were emailed to people on our email list. If you did not receive them and if you wish to be added to the list, please email us at Camrosepridecommunity@gmail.com. We will be happy to add you to the list!
This is an important meeting for connection and planning. Come and offer your ideas for upcoming events such as our December Holiday Celebration, the Queer Like Me Youth Art Project and Pride Week (February 25-March 2, 2019).
Join us at the EnCana Arena in Camrose this Friday night at 7:00 p.m. as the Camrose Kodiaks tape up their hockey sticks with Pride Tape to play the Olds Grizzlys and show their support for inclusion in sports!
Jeff McLean, inventor of Pride Tape, will be present on Friday with the “You Can Play” display (https://egale.ca/portfolio/you-can-play-canada/). Camrose Pride Community will also have a display to continue to share our mission to create safe and inclusive spaces for all of us through hosting events, providing education and collaborations (like this one with the Kodiaks!).
If you would like to show your support for inclusive sports and would like a free ticket to the game, stop by to pick up your tickets at Quantum Comics in Camrose before the Friday night game!
If you would like to, wear your pride colours!
Hope to see you at the game! Go Kodiaks!
