Orange Shirt Day - Every Child Matters

Why do people wear orange shirts on September 30? And what does this beautiful colour  symbolizes?


Orange Shirt Day references a real orange shirt taken from a residential school survivor in Canada.

Phyllis Webstad now 40 years old, tells her story about an orange shirt  she wore with pride on her first day at a church-run residential school in Williams Lake, B.C.  In her story she stated she was stripped of her clothes by school authorities, her hair  cut and her beautiful shirt was taken away. She never got it back. (  

“The colour orange has always reminded me of how my feelings didn’t matter, how no one cared.” I went to a treatment centre for healing when I was 27 and have been on this healing journey since then. I finally get it, that the feeling of worthlessness and insignificance, ingrained in me from my first day at the mission, affected the way I lived my life for many years.”

Phyllis Webstad, founder of Orange Shirt Day.
Phyllis Webstad’s story inspired Orange Shirt Day.

The day aims to raise awareness of the residential school system in Canada

More than 150,000 First Nations, Métis and Inuit children attended Indian residential schools in Canada between the 1800s and 1996. Operated by the Canadian government and church organizations. It is estimated that between four to six thousand children died at residential schools.

Wearing an orange shirt reminds us of the impact of residential then and Now

The last of the Residential schools closed in 1996, and as Webstad’s story indicates, many survivors are still coping with the physical and sexual abuse experienced at the schools. The impact of such trauma is still felt through communities today.

Orange Shirt Day honours Indigenous persons and their experiences and celebrate their resilience  and a commitment that - Every Child Matters.

A Reason to Smile!
By John Chalkias, Executive Director, Seeds of Hope Children’s Ministry
In North America, a visit to the dentist is something many of us are privileged to take for granted; we often procrastinate over making an appointment and rarely think of a dentist appointment with a spirit of eagerness and gratitude. However, for the children and staff at the Seeds of Hope (SoH) Orphanage in Zambia, having a dental team come and treat their oral issues was an exciting, much-anticipated, huge blessing and reason to smile!

The Rotary Observatory and Space Science Centre is on its way!

Posted by Elspeth Bowers on Jun 12, 2014

There's something starting to really take shape in Fraser River Heritage Park.  It's not a bird!  Or a plane! It's the new Rotary Observatory and Space Science Centre!  And it is happening on our doorstep and before our eyes.  What a terrific opportunity this facility will be - a place for the families of Mission to learn about the solar system and outer space.  You can follow the progress on Facebook by searching for the Rotary Observatory and Space Science Centre

Rotary Makes a Difference at Silverdale Creek Wetlands

Posted by Elspeth Bowers on Apr 25, 2014
Rotarians joined members of Stave Valley Salmon and families from the community to plant trees at Silverdale Creek Wetlands on Saturday.  The weather, in spite of a gloomy forecast of everlasting rain, surprised us with a lovely spring day of mixed sun and clouds.  Families came down and planted trees and explored the area, finding frogs, birds and a swimming garter snake, much to the delight of certain young boys!  There was a Rubber Duck Race to raise money for the Mission Food Centre, and along with refreshments and home-made cookies, the day was a huge success!  Thanks to Jim Taylor (for organizing) and other members of the Rotary Club of Mission for helping.  Image

How's Your Halq'emeylem?

Posted by Elspeth Bowers on Apr 05, 2014
How do you save a language from extinction?  Our guest speaker at Rotary this week will be Peter Lindley, Mission Public School District Language and Cultural Worker. Three decades after the last residential school closed in Mission, Halq'emeylem, the traditional language of the Sto:Lo people is now being taught in seven schools in our district. The Aboriginal populations of Canada lost their language through residential school and the Indian Hospitals", says Deroche Elementary Principal, Sue McLeod.  "It is pretty significant that this opportunity is now offered for our students and their families." Come and hear the story of this stunning effort to save a language and associated cultural meanings from extinction. Guests are welcome - Wednesday, April 9 at 7 am - Carrington House

World Polio Day - October 24th 2013

Posted by Elspeth Bowers

Coming up this month - Thursday, October 24th, 2013 marks World Polio Day.  World Polio Day was established by Rotary International over a decade ago to commemorate the birth of Jonas Salk, who led the first team to develop a vaccine against poliomyelitis. Use of this inactivated poliovirus vaccine and subsequent widespread use of the oral poliovirus, developed by Albert Sabin, led to the establishment of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative (GPEI) in 1988. Since then, GPEI has reduced polio worldwide by 99%.  Rotary, along with our partners, has reduced polio cases by 99 percent worldwide since our first project to vaccinate children in the Philippines in 1979. We are close to eradicating polio, but we have not quite finished the job.  World Polio Day is a time to commemorate what we have done, and to renew our energy to finish the job in the near future!

To find out how you can make a difference in this effort, follow this link:
