Sep 30 Gathering:  We wore orange shirts and other orange items in recognition of Orange Shirt Day (OSD) because we recognize that “Every Child Matters.”  OSD “is a legacy of the St. Joseph Mission (SJM) residential school commemoration event held in Williams Lake, BC, Canada, in the spring of 2013. It grew out of Phyllis’ story of having her shiny new orange shirt taken away on her first day of school at the Mission, and it has become an opportunity to keep the discussion on all aspects of residential schools happening annually” (www.orangeshirtday.org).
