(Surrey, BC) BC Metis Federation and partner community Nova Metis Heritage Association (Nova) held their second annual Christmas party for Metis members and families yesterday in Surrey.

A large turnout of Metis families and friends attended the festive Christmas event held near the Nova office at the Dell Shopping Centre in Surrey. There were roughly 30 children of all ages. The event included Metis music, food, and a special visit by Santa.

BC Metis Federation President Keith Henry stated, “This really was a great event. Fun for the children and families with members attending from many areas including Vancouver, Burnaby, Surrey, Abbotsford, Langley, Washington state, and other communities.”

BC Metis Federation President Henry added, “Thank you to the team who made arrangements to support fun for the families. People like Sherry Daniels, Ken Fisher, Joyce Fisher, Maxine Lavallee, Phil Lavallee, Norm Eyford, Sharon Eyford, and many volunteers.”

BC Metis Federation President Henry concluded, “Thank you the donors who enabled BC Metis Federation and Nova to buy many toys for the kids. We all made Christmas a little more special for our Metis community and families. I know many of our partner communities also held events and it is this true sense of community that is important. Metis culture has always included community and this weekend was special for everyone and had a bigger turn out than last year. I want to wish a very Merry Christmas from on behalf of the BC Metis Federation leadership to all families across British Columbia!”
