On March 28th, the Club was honoured to welcome Mykola Stebljanko as guest speaker. Mykola is the Past Governor of Rotary District 2232 (Ukraine) and attended via Zoom from his home in Odessa.


Last September, Mykola led a global Zoom meeting covering current Rotary projects to rebuild Ukraine. Of particular interest to our Club was the plight of the elementary school in the village of Bozova. Located about 26 KM West of Kyiv in the Bucha Region, the village was at one time the frontline of the Russian invasion from the North. The school became a shelter for the villagers and was subjected to direct attacks from tanks and artillery. Though nearly destroyed, Ukrainians have banded together to rebuild the school as a major step to creating an environment for families to return to the area.
