Dryden Riel Day
Louis Riel Day flag raising ceremony at Dryden City Hall.

The Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) Dryden office held a Louis Riel Day Celebration on Friday, November 15.

A Métis flag raising took place at Dryden City Hall where members of the MNO Northwest Métis Council, MNO staff and supporters of the community attended. The Dryden Mayor assisted with the raising of the flag.

This was followed by a reception at the MNO office where everyone enjoyed snacks and refreshments.

A feast hosted by MNO staff proved to be a huge success with 115 community members attending. Entertainment was provided by “Boarder Line” who performed a number of dances including square dances and jigs.
