The young girl’s festival day in Happy Valley Goose Bay will be celebrated for the first time in March 2010.
We spoke to Selma Jararuse, the Language Coordinator for InuKatiget UKausingit.
Jararuse says the Moravian Church did give approval for this celebration to take place at the Moravian Church.
She says the deadline for putting your name in is February 23rd 2010 for girls 15 years old and older. There are limited seats available. Jararuse says the girls will have a meeting on February 23rd from 1 to 3 PM to get an idea on what they want to do.
The first young girl’s day meeting will be on February 25th 2010 starting at 5 pm at the Labrador Friendship Center in the board room.
This Celebration will be on Sunday March 7th 2010; we advise that this celebration will be taking place the same day as the Labrador Winter Games.
She says this year the girls will meet at the LFC from10 am; then get ready to march to the 11 o’clock service at the Moravian church.
After the church service they head back to LFC for a dinner with family members and relatives.
Another church service will be at 4pm; after the 4pm service they will meet for tea and enjoy supper at the Moravian church.
Volunteers who are willing to help out can do so; Jararuse says they would really appreciate all the help they can get.
Call in now! Contact Selma Jararuse Jennie-Rose Campbell or Scott Hudson at the LFC at (709) 896-8302.
