Lake Cowichan has been celebrating Pride Month during June.
First, a rainbow flag was raised over Lake Cowichan town hall on Friday, June 14 to celebrate and support diversity and it was flown for the remainder of the month. (See page 2 for story.)
In addition, Sean Battye’s Social Justice class at Lake Cowichan Secondary were planning to do some work on a rainbow crosswalk at their own school and an approach was made to Palsson Elementary to see if a rainbow crosswalk at the primary school might be well received.
An enthusiastic reply saw the secondary students at Palsson two weeks ago painting a bright sidewalk in a rainbow of colours to the delight of the young children, and the adults who turned out for the occasion, who included several Lake Cowichan town councillors who were able to fit the event into their schedule.
