This Remembrance Day, the Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) Georgian Bay Métis Council youth group hosted a veteran awareness and fun evening. Métis youth enjoyed crafts, colouring, trivia and education about Métis veterans and how they helped shape Canada.

Organized by MNO Veterans’ Council Sgt-at-Arms Greg Garratt and MNO Georgian Bay Métis Council Chairperson Larry Ferris, the evening included contests, prizes and sandwiches provided by Bernice Paradis.

The MNO Georgian Bay Métis Council has done excellent work with youth activities over the past few years with much of the thanks going to the many volunteers on council and their families. The Council hopes to host a youth-veterans weekend in the new year on an expanded level.
