The Friendship Circle has been a tremendous opportunity to get more involved in the community in a more meaningful way. Over the past four months I have had the great pleasure of getting to know a wonderful child, Arnold, and his mother. Every Monday my fellow volunteer and I visit them and participate in various activities that help bring joy to the family and help both Arnold's and our own personal development. This program has meant so much to me that it has become a major factor to consider in choosing between staying in Calgary or going away for university studies. Although I cannot predict the future, I certainly believe that my participation in Friendship Circle will continue for a long time to come, and I am very grateful to the program and Arnold for all of the life lessons they have taught me."
Sincerely, Boris Virine
