African AIDS Angels Victoria BC

This weekend (12th and 13th May)the Rotarians are holding their major annual conference at the victoria Conference centre. The District 5020 Rotarians, under the guidance of District Governor Joan Firkins, have been wonderfully supportive of the African AIDS Angels all year, and at the conference each club (there are 87) has been invited to display the three angels they have dressed for the occasion. The delegates will vote for their favourites, paying $1.00 per vote, and the angels will be auctioned. (The proceeds from all this will be going to the projects)
At the same time, on Saturday afternoon, Linda, Ashley and Anne will be holding a workshop. Joan is certain of 40 young exchange students taking the workshop, and it could be up to 100!.Luckily there will be a group of Rotary Anns on hand to help.
All in all it should be a wonderful time. I'll blog on afterwards and let you know how it goes.
P.S. A round of hearty applause and three cheers for Kristjan who has spent so much time getting this BLOG up and running for us. Thanks so much, Kristjan.
