Truth and Reconciliation Quilt: We are very fortunate to bring this quilt to our community. It will be on display this week (July 28 – August 2) at Highland Hills United Church, Minden (in the sanctuary) during office hours: Tuesday to Friday 9 to noon, and 1 to 2:30. It was created by the Kawartha Truth and Reconciliation Support Group (KTRSG) members on the legacy of residential schools. They are trying to become an example of what reconciliation looks like: people working together and treating each other with respect, justice and equality. To find out more about this quilt and the KTRSG, check their website: www.kawarthatruthandreconciliation.ca/quilt-stories
