Kathleen Bell, St. Albert Amplify Festival
This past Tuesday we heard from Kathleen bell, the coordinator of the St. Albert Amplify Festival. She had come to give us a report on their 2017 festival and to say thank you for the donation which we made in it’s support last year. The festival is an arts festival designed to give young people in northern Alberta between grade seven and the age of twenty-one a chance to both develop and showcase their art, creativity and cultural talents. It takes place over two days in October and this year will be the fifth year for the festival. 
The festival is composed of eight workshops, for which a minimal registration fee is charged, seventeen free drop-in activities and two evening concerts called the Battle of the Bands for which a minimal entry fee is charged. It also includes an art exhibit, a poetry slam, and presentation of various video projects.   The workshop and other activities cover topics encouraging young people to develop their skills as musicians, artist and writers and also gives them a venue to showcase their talents.  
It is organised and run by volunteers and receives most of it’s eighty-thousand dollar yearly operating budget from the City of St. Albert.  The volunteers take care of organising, fundraising, managing social media, marketing and many other duties.  They also have a committee of youth advisors who ensure that the topics covered are relevant to todays youth culture.  
Last year it gave one hundred and forty-seven young people a chance to show their talents and was attended by over nine hundred people.
Kathleen then showed us a musical video presented by one of last year’s participants who subsequently went on to win several awards from the City of St Albert as a poet and young artist.  She said that this festival gives young people a chance to try something new, develop their talents, learn about themselves and develop their self confidence.  She said it is also an innovative way to help young people deal with challenges in their lives such as bullying, loneliness, depression and anxiety. It gives them a way to express themselves and helps them to become resilient and confident members of society. She closed by thanking us again for our donation to helping these young people share their talents.

Letter of apppreciation from ELEPAP
Αγαπητέ κύριε Παπανικόλα καλησπέρα,
            Εύχομαι να είστε καλά!
Σας ζητώ συγνώμη που καθυστέρησα να σας γράψω, αλλά μας καθυστέρησαν πολύ στην παράδοση των παραγγελιών. Σας στέλνω σήμερα τα εξοφλημένα τιμολόγια, μαζί με φωτογραφίες του γυμναστηρίου. Ελπίζω ως την άλλη Δευτέρα να παραλάβουμε και τα είδη του νηπιαγωγείου, ώστε να σας στείλουμε και άλλες φωτογραφίες.
Θέλω να γνωρίζετε ότι και στις δύο αίθουσες, ως ελάχιστο δείγμα των ευχαριστιών μας,  έχουμε αναρτήσει πινακίδες με την δωρεά του Ομίλου σας.
Και πάλι σας ευχαριστούμε πάρα-πάρα πολύ και σας περιμένουμε να τα χαρείτε μαζί μας.
Να είστε πάντα καλά!
Με εκτίμηση
Βασιλική Μάστακα
We apologize that it took us so long to get back to you but there was some delay with the delivery. We hope that by this coming week we will receive the kindergarten living room set-up, and photographs will be forwarded.
We would like to inform you that for both rooms were they will be installed, as a minimum gesture of our recognition we will place plaques recognizing your Club.
We thank you again and look forward to seeing you for you to share with us our gratitude to your Club.
Wishing you all, good health.
Yours respectfully.
