Here in Manitoba, our See Me Beautiful Conference for Educators and Parents falls in NDSAW, and our annual Dinner Dance is on November 8th.
We are thrilled to announce that CDSS Board Member Caroline Pearce and her daughter Nevada will be interviewed once again this year on Breakfast Television on November 5th at 7:45 a.m.
