Media Advisory: Manitoba Metis Federation Bringing Early Christmas to Churchill
Winnipeg, MB – The Manitoba Metis Federation (MMF) is bringing a little bit of Christmas to Churchill this Sunday. President David Chartrand and the MMF staff have busily been collecting items for a traditional Christmas meal and toys for the students at the Duke of Marlborough School.
“We are honoured to be able to share in the spirit of the Christmas season with the people of Churchill,” said President Chartrand. “We know that they are experiencing difficulties which are beyond their control, and we are here for the community.”
This would not be possible without the support of community partners Calm Air, Pratts Food Service and Noel Bernier.
The celebrations will be held at the Duke of Marlborough School beginning at 11 a.m. and include:
· Greetings from MMF President David Chartrand
· Light lunch
· Christmas concert featuring: Oliver Boulette, Al Desjarlais, Clint Dutiaume, Riley Dutiaume, Paul Hampton, Donny Ranville, Patti Kusturok, Tayler Fleming, Diana Desjardin, Colleen Bryce, Kathy Bryce and Gloria Desjarlais
· Prize draws
· Closing remarks and well wishes
A full media release and media kit will be available after the event.
