YMCA Peace Medal Ceremony

YMCA Health, Fitness, Aquatic Facility

Hosted by the YMCA of Owen Sound Grey Bruce

We invite the community to join YMCA staff, members, volunteers and local dignitaries at the YMCA Peace Medal Ceremony taking place Thursday November 22 at 12:00 PM. Held at the YMCA Health, Fitness & Aquatics Centre, we will honour a group of local community members who have made significant contributions towards peace-building.

Since 1984, YMCA Peace Week has been a vehicle for educating Canadians about peace in all its dimensions. It is also a moment when we recognize those individuals or groups in our communities who stand as are role models for peace, and who inspire others.

During this week YMCAs throughout the country honour the work of local individuals or groups by awarding the YMCA Peace Medal. Since 1987, more than 1,950 individuals and groups across Canada have been recognized with YMCA Peace Medals. Medal recipients are people who, without any special resources, status, wealth or position, embody a commitment to building a peaceful community.

This year YMCA Peace Week is November 17 – 24
