Fort St. John City Hall Goes Purple

Travis Fortnum


Last night Fort St. John City Hall was lit up purple.

It's part of the City's plan to recognize National Dental Hygiene Week from April 6 - 12.

The week in Fort St. John is also recognized as National Dental Hygienists Week by the Canadian Dental Hygienists Association (CDHA).

According to the CDHA "the colour purple is synonymous with dental hygiene, and has been the official colour of dental professionals since 1897 when lilac was first chosen for the emblem of the National Association of Dental Faculties. 

"Purple has long been the trim colour for dental hygiene graduates' caps and gowns and is said to signify compassion, purpose, and inspiration."
