AT OUR CLUB February 11, 2020

Alexandra (Ola) Calderon, Executive Director of the Thunder Bay Community Foundation, presented a compelling story of her interesting life and the evolution of her passion for helping people and fostering social justice through fundraising.

Born in Rome, Italy, she became a refugee from communist Poland. She led a peripatetic life with two siblings fleeing Poland, eventually five siblings in Canada. With a unique educational background and approach to life, she found herself with husband Andrew and now 3 great sons and two rescue cats in a busy and very fulfilling life in Thunder Bay.

Ola explained the basics of giving through the TBCF and encouraged (more) members to get involved.
She was introduced by Colin Bruce, and thanked by Jackie Dojack (both Rotarians are also board members of Thunder Bay Community Fund).

She is pictured after this fine presentation (computer glitch handled nicely) along with Colin, Jackie and Past-President / meeting Chair Warren Philp.

Thanks for joining the Port Arthur Rotary, Ola ... you are a real asset to the Club!
