A Communiqué from the Saskatchewan Aboriginal Literacy Network Inc.
It is with deep regret that we must announce that the Saskatchewan Aboriginal Literacy Gathering 2012 to be held May 24-25 will be cancelled. This is due to low registration and sponsorship commitment. All paying registrants will be re-imbursed within 30-60 days of the Gala.
However, the SALN will continue to host the Saskatchewan Aboriginal Literacy Awards Gala 2012 in Regina on May 24th. Doors open at 5:30 PM. Award winners will be announced at the event. There will be a Grand Entry, Entertainment featuring Tom Jackson, Banquet, Awards, Silent Auction, and Prize give-aways. Tickets are $75 per person and $600 per table. Tickets must be purchased in advance of May 22, 2012 and are available online (PayPal).
Dear Aboriginal Literacy Colleagues and Supporters,
Due to federal and provincial budget cutbacks we are unable to offer the full complement of programs and services we have had the great pleasure and honour to do over the past number of years. We are experiencing severe financial constraints and may have to close the office and lay off all staff for July & August.
Your support of the SALN is greatly appreciated and you can help us stay open and continue to meet the demands of Aboriginal people and literacy by supporting our upcoming fundraiser – the Saskatchewan Aboriginal Literacy Awards Gala 2012 or register for our Saskatchewan Aboriginal Literacy Gathering 2012.
Thank you very much,
Saskatchewan Aboriginal Literacy Network Inc. is excited to announce the launch of our new and improved website. Designed with a fresh innovative appearance the website has many new features to assist our visitors in a more user-friendly format. With improvements throughout, the new website has a greater emphasis on our programs and services as well as product purchasing. From an informational perspective the new site enables the SALN to improve the way we communicate with our network utilizing frequent updates and social media outlets such as Facebook and Twitter. So take a look around, and “make literacy an Aboriginal cultural tradition.”
