at Purple Woods Conservation Area in Oshawa from 11am - 3pm. Please view the poster on our website at Big Drum Social - East Central Ontario Regional Council of the United Church of Canada (ecorcuccan.ca) An invitation from Reverend Rodney Smith-Merkley: I'd like to invite people on Oct. 8th who would like to attend the Big Drum Social to first meet at Westminster United Church in Whitby at 10am for a sharing circle and to see their Land Acknowledgement plaque which will have been dedicated on Oct. 2nd. The idea is people may bring their questions, or feel more comfortable attending with others.
