Celebrate women

To honour International Women’s Day March 8, an inspirational celebration including songs, food and giving, will take place.

To honour International Women’s Day March 8, an inspirational celebration including songs, food and giving, takes place from noon to 2 p.m. at Ksan Place.

Organizers are looking toward an inspirational song (or three) to celebrate women and girls. A light lunch from Frugalicious Friday, a Ksan project, will be served. And everyone gets a chance to mingle and visit with the community.

The theme is Connecting Girls, Inspiring Futures and those who come are invited to bring an item they think might be inspirational to a girl. New items won’t be discouraged, but it’s encouraged to bring a recycled, gently used item. Items will be passed on through Ksan programs and networks.

Suggested items include books with inspiring quotes for girls, journals, drawing pencils, disposable cameras, art cards with poems or lyrics, herb gardens, swim passes, DVDs such as Juno, Little Miss Sunshine, Precious, CDs with pro-woman music. For more details, see Community Calendar.
