Adele Casuga, coordinator of the Canadian Martyrs Parish-Centre 507 Sandwich Club, spoke about the club's project for which they received a $4000 RTOERO Community Grant. On a weekly basis, home-based parishioners of Canadian Martyrs Church prepare a variety of nutritious sandwiches for Centre 507 in Centertown Ottawa. Funding for this project supports the purchase of fresh, healthy ingredients to make sandwiches. The ingredient kits are delivered to the homes of parishioners, and the wrapped assembled sandwiches are picked up the next day and delivered to Centre 507.
Members present were treated to a nice complimentary luncheon. Thanks to the organizers, the RTOERO District 27 AGM was a success.
