National Day of Mourning

April 28 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

April 28th is the National Day of Mourning. This day is to pay tribute to our fellow workers who have been killed or injured from a work place accident. This year, CUPE and NSGEU will be co-hosting the ceremonies at the Pier Legion, Branch 128, 850 Victoria Road, Whitney Pier at 11:00 am. Due to environmental and recycling bylaws; we can no longer receive wreaths with pins so as an alternative, we are suggesting a bouquet of flowers. Most flower shops are aware of this and are ready to make suggestions when you place your order. We ask that anyone wishing to lay flowers, have them delivered by 10:00 to the Pier Legion. Also, we will need the name of the organization or person who the flowers are for, who they are from and if there will be someone there to place them. For further information, you may contact: Denise Lewis 902-563-6939 Mary Jessome 902-574-1380 Kim Sheppard 902-578-3115 Lois MacDougall 902-537-1848
