The Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation’s Traffic Safety Committee would like to bring attention to an event to honor those who have been affected by traffic collisions. World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims is commemorated on the third Sunday of November each year to remember the many millions killed and injured on the world’s roads, together with their families, friends and many others who are also affected. It is also a day on which we thank the emergency services and reflect on the tremendous burden and cost of this daily continuing disaster to families, communities and countries, and on ways to halt it. We are asking that everyone say a prayer or observe a moment of silence on Sunday, November 18th for those who have been negatively affected by road traffic collisions.

The Traffic Safety Committee will be holding the event in the Lucy Covington Government Center Auditorium on the Monday November 19th, following the official observed World Day of Remembrance. This will be a time of reflection, prayer and story-telling. Our goal is to decrease the amount of serious injury and fatality collisions that occur on the reservation by raising awareness for traffic safety. 

If you would like more information about this event or would like to be involved, please contact Nicole Ahlem at (509)634-2107 or
