Other Fundraising Ideas

  • For World Polio Day?
  • Can be a simple awareness campaign.
  • We have an entertainer in the club.
    • Pass the hat night with proceeds going to Polio campaign.
    • Include a speech recording on the state of polio in the world.
    • Special guest speaker.
    • Held at Heritage Hall with caterer.
      • A sit-down meal would allow us to increase ticket price; therefore, increased revenue.
  • Another tag day?
Break for meal. Catered.

Chief Brent Bisaillion

  • Chief Bisaillion spoke to the club on the history of indigenous/non-indigenous relations in the area and in Canada in general, and how reconciliation through shared economic development could take place. This could take place through the idea of an urban reserve on the traditional lands of the Serpent River people in the areas around the city proper.
