Polish Canadian Women’s Society of Edmonton board meeting ,July 10, 2020
Pandemic COVID-19 caused almost total suspension of activities of our organization. For close to 4 months we communicated by phone only. Recent partial relaxation of restrictions enabled us to meet in person. Thanks to hospitality of Wiesia Środa and her husband, we could meet in their garden, large enough to keep prescribed distance of 2 metres between persons; weather also was very nice. Subject of initial discussion was our last event – theatre performance on the subject of famous Polish Women in history. It was a great success, audience was over 300 people, with many people who could not get in; our artists are planning next performance, on a subject of men this time, restrictions permitting maybe in autumn. Our annual election meeting will probably be held in large room of the Polish Hall, to assure safe distance for participants.
