Much like the situation in Shoal Lake, this has been a disaster for the community of Pikangikum for many years.
The second fundraising opportunity is on Friday, May 15, 2015, at St. Paul Fort Garry. This is a pub night fundraiser and it is designed to benefit the Pikangikum water project. The link will take you to the Primates World Relief and Development page to give you more details on the catastrophic situation that this First Nations community lives under all year round. If you remember the hand-wringing that came with Winnipeg’s short boil water advisory this past winter, imagine living with that on a daily basis. We need to find permanent solutions. This will require government action, but until that happens, we must not let the people living in Pikangikum continue to suffer.
Information for the event is below. We don’t have any video of the Narwhals on their own, the video above is of them backing Rev. Donald at the St. Philip’s pub night, last December.
St. Paul’s Fort Gary is presenting a “Support for Pikangikum Pub Night6.”

If you have spaces on your schedule on the next two Fridays, here is a good way to fill them up. We hope a lot of people will come together for these two good events.
The next two Fridays present St. Philip’s the opportunity to help some of their friends with fundraising efforts. The first of these two fundraising events is on Friday, May 15, 2015. Our friends at St. Mark’s Anglican Church are holding a fundraising Chinese dinner at the Norwood Legion, 124 Marion Street.
St. Mark’s Chinese dinner fundraiser will be held at the Norwood Legion at 124 Marion Street this coming Friday, May 15. We hope everyone will attend this event with family and friends. There will be a door prize and a silent auction during the dinner. Tickets are 15.00 per adult, children 5-12 are 10.00, and under 5 are free. See the office, Judy MacDonald, Lynn Webster or the Legion to pick up tickets. Tickets will also be available at the door, which opens at 5:00. Dinner will be at 5:30.
In the past several years, St. Mark’s has been taking on projects to make their building more accessible to people living with physical challenges. The most recent change made was an upgrade to the elevator chair that takes people from the main floor up to the church hall which is on the second floor.
