April 14 - Anna interviewed by Global National
 
April 13th - Anna received a thank you note from ladies from the Ukraine that needed shoes.  Here is what they said:
Once again, thank you very much for your help. "Girls with unusual feet" :-) in their new shoes went to dinner and you can't see the worn ones anymore.
(translated from Polish)
 
Letter from Anna April 5th:
 
March 27th:
Here is another slide that I have prepared to let people know about our SUITCASE PROJECT. This big white tent is the Humanitarian Help Centre for Refugees and this is where I drop our suitcases.
The volunteers distribute them among those in greatest need. This is also a spot where they get food and all necessary stuff for their further travelling trips.
And I have a great news to all of you! Last Sunday, the president of RC Warszawa City, Hung (the Vietnamese guy) offered us a purchase of suitcases on whole sale price at his huge Vietnamese shopping centre.
Up to now, I was still looking for the best prices, but his offer is the best. The stock is outside Warsaw, but still it’s worth buying them over there and the demand for suitcases is huge.
I’ll send you the bills for the suitcases I’ve bought so far, tomorrow I’ll order more. As agreed, we’ll buy 30.
The volunteers in this white tent already love us! 
Anna

Our club acknowledges we are on Amiskwacîwâskahikan Treaty 6 land. We are all Treaty People.  
We respectfully acknowledge the land upon which our club operates is located on Treaty 6 Territory and has served a purpose as a traditional meeting ground for many First Nations groups. This territory has provided a traveling route and home to the Nakoda Sioux, and later, Blackfoot and Cree peoples, followed by Saulteaux and Métis and other Indigenous peoples.
 
 
Edmonton is also in Metis Zone 4.  The Metis flag is the white infinity symbol on a blue background recognizing a mixture of two distinct cultures.
 
We  believe that exemplifying and embracing diversity,  equity, and inclusion (DEI) should be a part of everything we do at Rotary.
