Title: “Walk for Water” in support of our “Water For Life, Not Profit” campaign
Location: Guelph City Hall
Link out: Click here
Description: Will begin with a Traditional Territorial Acknowledgement and some water songs.
Then we will head south on Gordon all the way through Guelph and finish at the National Headquarters for Nestle Waters Canada, near Aberfoyle, around 5:30 pm.
We have done this walk before and it talks about 3 hrs. Please invite others to join for some of it or all of it! There are other important events happening that same day (The Niska Road Cleanup for example). It would be great to have a really big showing at the beginning of this walk at City Hall and at the end at Nestle’s.
We want this to be a celebration of our water. We want this to be fun! We encourage bucket drummers, festive finery, noisemakers and beautiful signage. This is a peaceful walk and ask that all participants keep this tone in mind. This walk will help us in one of our other goals which is to “paint Wellington County Blue”. We are asking people everywhere to show support for the idea of Water for Life, Not Profit by tying a blue ribbon on a tree on your front yard and by wearing our blue ribbon lapel pins. Ideally we will be tying these ribbons along our walking route! These ribbons are available from 10 Carden and other venues around our County beginning soon.
Start Time: 2:00 pm
End Time: 6:00 pm
