YMCA of Fredericton Peace Week (November 16 – 23, 2019)

YMCA Peace Week is a time when we celebrate the presence of peace in our communities, and reflect on the peace-building work that happens all year round, both inside and outside the YMCA. The Peace Medallion was developed in 1987 by the International Committee at the YMCA of Fredericton and has since been adopted by YMCAs across Canada.

As part of YMCA Peace week, YMCAs across Canada present the YMCA Peace Medallion to individuals or to a group, who, without any special resources, status, wealth or position, demonstrate a commitment to the values of PEACE through contributions made within their local, national or global community.

This year, the YMCA of Fredericton is pleased to announce that the recipient of the Peace Medallion is the Nashwaaksis Y Service Club.
