The 2012 Pen Pal gathering was hosted by the Hamilton Nationals Professional lacrosse team as part of their 2012 season home opener.  The youth learned about lacrosse 'The Creators Game' and joined together to cheer on the home team.  1700 youth took part and helped to set a Nationals attendance record.  Saidat and Reztore Pride worked with the youth to celebrate healthy living and develop the Friendship Dance.  Juno award winning Murray Porter from Six Nations sang the Canadian National Anthem while the youth provided opening addresses in four languages. 

A little bit of the friendship dance!
