Manitoba Keewatinowi Okimakanak’s (MKO) Ready, Set, Spring Event was a huge success with all the students, friends, families, and allies in the City of Thompson. There were so many fun-filled activities that brought everyone out to enjoy in the festivities!

MKO sponsored the Ma-Mow-We-Tak Friendship Centre to host a series of activities for everyone; they also had a tremendous turnout with their cool, fun events. A huge thank you to the Executive Director Dee Chaboyer and to her amazing staff.

MKO also sponsored the Mall of The Arts to showcase the artistic talents of everyone who showed up at the City Centre Mall. A huge shout out to Andria Stephens, Director of Mall of The Arts and her team.

So much laughter and happiness was shared by all!
