International Women's Day Breakfast A Hit

It was an emotional start to the day as part of Prince George-Valemount MLA Shirley Bond’s annual International Women’s Day breakfast.
The theme of the event was “Celebrating Women who Make a Difference,” and the speakers included local entrepreneur Shauna Harper, Krista Levar with the RCMP’s Victim’s Services and her co-worker Sam. The final speaker was Rose Tohme, who talked about the challenges as one of the city’s first Syrian refugees.
“It’s a privilege to me. I’ve felt overwhelmed with this welcome. It’s an honour to me.I really appreciate it, you know?”
The event highlights some of the challenges and achievements of women in the community, with the proceeds from the event going to the Syrian refugee effort.
