Alana Millard, who was chosen to represent the Okotoks Rotary Club at the annual Adventure in Citizenship program in Ottawa has just returned from her trip.  Here is the letter she wrote to the club.
Hello Mr. Stuparyk and Okotoks Rotary Club,

Have started to catch up on my sleep and wanted to once again thank you
for allowing me to attend the Ottawa Conference.  It was truly a life
changing adventure that will stay with me forever.  The people I meet
and the opportunity to hear, speak and learn from others was terrific.
I'd have to express a huge amount of gratitude to the Rotary club of
Ottawa for all their organization and thoughtfulness.  Every day,
session and meal went off without any major problems.  I already am
missing my many new friends and the activities we were involved in.  It
would be so great for many other young people to be a part of this.  I
feel very lucky!  This conference gave me a greater understanding of
what it means to be a Canadian citizen and how many opportunities I have
waiting for me in my future.

You might also like to know that my video entry won for best video -
much to my surprise.

If you are ever in need of another teen volunteer to attend a conference
for you I'd gladly volunteer.

Thanks, thanks, thanks and thanks again for this wonderful opportunity,
Alana Millard
