The McGee Family will be having a “TRADITIONAL CULTURAL GATHERING” held at TC’s Aug. 5 and 6th, 2016, with a nice friendly BBQ Aug 7, 2016 @ Haywire Bay.
The McGee family has many extended families within the Klahoose & Sliammon Nation it is only customary to extend our invitation to some of our family from the Klahoose & Sliammon Nation to witness this “Blessed Tradition Cultural Event”. We would like to invite all but we are limited to seating.
We ask that this “Traditional Cultural Event” be in good faith, good spirit, positive energy and respect for everyone attending. As day will be emotional for some us and is meant to bring our nations together as one family.
We understand that every nation does their celebration in different ways, I ask that you respect our celebration as it may be different from others you have attending in the past.
We have limited seats available for this event and would ask that you RSVP no later than July 29, 2016. Names will be provided at the door for seating.
Or you will not get a seat. (Even if you can attend 1 day or certain time please let me know as seating is critical)
