Celebrate the Launch of P-R’s 1st Community-Owned Solar Power Project
Grab a bite and learn how solar power is generated from industry experts between 10am and 2pm. A launch ceremony at noon will present the project’s history and partnership with the Keewaywin First Nation, as well as speeches from local officials and government representatives.
Kids can also learn about solar power by building solar-powered toy cars on site.
BBQ starts at 11am – please RSVP below to ensure there is enough for everyone.
