To celebrate the launch of the MNO Métis Family Wellbeing program, MNO staff and the MNO GRMC co-hosted a very successful Family Fun Night on May 29, 2017. The MNO Métis Family Wellbeing program now serves the Kitchener, Waterloo and Wellington regions
Young participants demonstrates his skills with a bow and arrow. The Family Fun Night took place at the Round Table and Royal Garrison in Guelph and brought together about five dozen citizens and their families from throughout the region. There was something for everyone - from toddlers, to youth and young adults, to parents and grandparents.
Activities ranged from board games for the more sedate, to, and under strict supervision, the throwing sharp objects such as hatchets and knives for those who wanted a bit more spice in their evening. There was even the chance to hone one’s bow and arrow skills.
Of course, it was a Métis Family Fun Night which meant that there was lots of good food and general good company. Everyone enjoyed the chance to come together and socialize. This event was so universally popular that the Council is considering making it an annual event.
