Whether you’ve been coming for years or have been meaning to come out for your first time, this is the perfect moment to come out. We will hear from youth leader Kakeka Thundersky about why building community is important to her; Winnipeg’s own Joe Curtis will share his Meet Me at the Bell Tower original song; and of course Cake from Gunn’s Bakery, and our yearly recognition of community the Bell Tower Awards. If you want to help, bring yourself, a friend, a prize to donate, a song to share or words to gift to the community!
