September 2021 Abbotsford Newsletter

September is the 9th month of the year in the Julian & Gregorian calendars & for many, the month signals the end of summer, beginning of autumn and back to school. The weather throughout the month allows mild mornings & comfortable days. However, because of the abundant rainfall, prepare for rainy afternoons. September's birthstone is the sapphire & this month’s Zodiac signs are both Virgo & Libra.

What Orange Shirt Days Means to Me: An Abbotsford VACC Student tells their story.

Orange shirt day is a gentle reminder about what my parents, Aunts, Uncles, & cousins have experienced. I share with my children about where their grandparents have been & what they did to heal themselves. This is a good learning opportunity, for everyone. If we learn each other's past struggles, we will have a better understanding on who we are, & what we can do to help?
