The 61st Annual Red Feather Week commences Monday, 2016 SEPT 19. This week long event is a chance for high school students across the municipality to showcase their school spirit, compete in healthy competitions and give back to the community.

Youth Committee Advisor, Erica Kitchen says “The Youth Committee Ambassadors have worked very hard to not only plan the week’s events but also their own individual school activities to help raise money for youth related programs in Chatham-Kent. This week would not be possible without their determination as well as the dedication of the teachers, principals, school boards, and volunteers.”
