There will be readings for students and their parents starting at 9 a.m. Throughout the morning the stories, focusing on the RCMP, will continue with material suited to different age groups.

Every story will bring to life Royal Canadian Mounted Police history from the days of the North West Mounted Police, to the Royal North West Mounted Police, to the present day RCMP.
