Some quick pics from our Second Annual "Every Girl Matters Day," held in conjunction with the UN's Day of the Girl on Oct 11th, 2014. This year we featured the film "Girl Rising," which showcases what different girls around the world are doing in their communities to get an education and the adversities they face. We also had art table set up for individuals to create "inspiring pieces of art," that they could take home as keepsakes. Minister Mike DeJong officially presented the Proclamation held at The Reach Gallery Museum.
