Over the summer, a group of artists and musicians organized a successful Wild Salmon, Drums and Art event in Maple Ridge’s downtown Memorial Peace Park. Everyone in the community was welcome to join the circle led by Sto:lo Elder Eddie Gardner for storytelling and an opportunity to learn about traditional Indigenous drumming. Red Fox Creative Café art activities and a salmon celebration were included in the festivities. It is hoped by all who attended that this community gathering will become an annual tradition in our downtown park.
