Clean Water for Africa Day Summary

Great time at Clean Water for Africa Day and we raised over $4000 for the well in Mwanza, Tanzania. The weather held off long enough and people seemed to have a good time. The trebuchet was a hit and by the way, if anyone wants it for a fund raiser, I am sure it is available. Thanks to all our sponsors, the Tanzania High Commission, Plan Canada, our wonderful volunteers and the media and to Pierre Poilievre, MP, Lisa McLeod, MPP, and City Councillor Steve Desroches for attending. It was a success!!
