FASD Awareness Day is commemorated on September 9th of every year to recognize the importance of the nine months of alcohol-free pregnancy to ensure the child is born with the best possible start to his/her life.
It is not only the responsibility of the mother to abstain from alcohol and drugs, but also her family, friends and the community to support and encourage her during that special time.
In Terrace, Kermode Friendship Society, Make Children First Network, MCFD, Kalum Community School Society and other partners come together again to share the important message and serve Terrace’s families.
On Friday, Sep 9th the program starts at 8:30 am with free pancake breakfast followed by panel discussion at the Terrace Arena Banquet Room. The activities then move outdoors to the George Little Park from 2 pm till 5 pm. There will be people on hand to provide additional information about the affects of FASD; activities for the whole family and a free BBQ.

pretty simple concept. if you are pregnant don't drink, there is less of a chance your kids will be damaged
