Girls Day features two workshops

The Fraser Valley Community Action Team (FVCAT) will hold a “Girls Day” event on Wednesday, Nov. 21 with two interactive workshops.

The event runs from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.  For location and other details, call the Abbotsford Youth Commission at 604-854-8785.

One of the workshops is titled Taking Care of Ourselves, Taking Care of Others and is about preventing sexual exploitation.
