How do you Celebrate Nine Decades?… together!

As part of the planning for this year’s milestone session, the YPM Executive and Cabinet would like to host a commemorative event on December 28th as part of the annual Bear Pit. However, as we haven’t exactly been the only ones running the show for the last 90 years, we feel it’s just not our event to plan. So, we would love your input in the process!

We have discussed a number of ideas, but are now looking for a way to really make this evening special. Do you have any ideas? Maybe even want to help out with planning the event? Drop me a line at speaker@ypmanitoba.ca and let’s talk about it!!! Our plan is to blend a commemorative event with the annual Bear Pit by extending the reception afterwards, and transforming the rotunda into a “Walk through YPM’s Past”. The organization has such wonderful and extensive archival material (at the Manitoba Archives), it’s such a shame it’s hasn’t been viewed more.

So there you have it – a sneak peek at what awaits you at this year’s session of Youth Parliament of Manitoba. Take this chance to really reconnect with the organization, and to mark a very important time in the history of our historic institution. We love hearing from alumni and getting your feedback, so send it my way! (Seriously, love your feedback!)

All the best,

Darcy Vermeulen
Speaker (Past-Chairperson)
90th Youth Parliament of Manitoba

    Wow, I can’t belive it has been that long aready. Seems like just yesterday that I had the opportunity to participate and not some 20+ years ago in such a great atmosphere. I had the opportunity to be a page 2 years in a row and participate as a member of parliament the 3rd year. Happy 90th Anniversary.
