Week 7 Updates

Thanks to everyone for your involvement in Caravan!!  

It was a wonderful celebration of the cultural diversity that enriches our program.  To quote officer Terry Russel, of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police,  "It was simply the best event I've attended in public community relations...all that it achieves is truly what the fabric of Canada is all about!"
