August 20th: DWS General Meeting/Public Art Making Event

Join us in our public meeting this month where we will be producing art for the upcoming Art Walk in Jubilee Park during our Overdose Awareness Day on the 31st.   For many of us, we no longer have photos of those we have lost or personal items we can still treasure that belonged to those we have cared for and lost to overdose.  This event is an opportunity to memorialize the cherished memories and share their lives with others.

Details: August 20th from 1:30 – 3:30 in the jasbir room (basement) of Archway Community Services (formally Abbotsford Community Services)

We will provide art supplies, a snack and friendship. For more info please text Amanda at 778-347-3840
