Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month
October is recognized
worldwide, across Canada, and within our province as Pregnancy and Infant Loss
Awareness month; and
During the month, we take time to honor and remember those who have lost
a child during pregnancy or in infancy; and
Losing a child in pregnancy or infancy is an unspeakable grief and many
are left feeling alone and unsupported. It is our intention to raise awareness
and to support those who grieve and to know they do not need to feel alone in
their journey of shock and sadness; and
October 15 is observed with remembrance ceremonies, candlelight vigils
and the International Wave of Light where communities across the globe
illuminate landmarks, bridges and buildings in pink, blue and purple and where
candles are lit at 7 pm to create a wave of light with the different time zones.
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED:
That His Worship Mayor Rob Keffer and Members of Council proclaim October 2022 as Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month in the Town of Bradford West Gwillimbury.
PLEASE JOIN US FOR A FLAG-RAISING
The flag-raising will take place on Monday,
October 3rd at 11:00 am (outside) at the Court House Courtyard - 57 Holland St. E.
