City of Fort St. John issues two proclamations for next month

At Monday’s Fort St. John City Council meeting, Council issued two proclamations. They’re recognizing June as brain injury awareness month, and the week of June 14-20 as arts week.

Arts week will feature a number of events aimed at celebrating the local arts community. One of the highlights of the week will be the Bright Nights in June gala on June 19. A number of performers will be on hand, and there will be a silent auction during the cocktail party at the North Peace Cultural Centre.


The following day will be the Bright Nights in June showcase from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. There will be free arts classes and free performances at the North Peace Cultural Centre throughout the day as well as other planned activities.

Council also heard a presentation by Adam Richards, a representative of the Northern Brain Injury Association on some of the issues facing those with brain injuries, and the difficulties associated with living with a brain injury.
