Madoka Kaname, Reimu Hakurei visit Poland

Mitakihara University Chancellor Dr. Madoka Kaname was not available to celebrate with the Mitakihara Magi football team and their 34th BCS National Championship. Vice-Chancellor Sayaka Miki filled in during the celebrations in Canada. In mid-December of 2045, Dr. Kaname, accompanied by Hakurei Centre Patron Reimu Hakurei, the Gensokyo Ambassador to the European Union, visited Poland for a month and a half to remember the Solidarity movement and the beginning of the downfall of Communism in Eastern Europe.

The tour included cities such as Warsaw, Krakow, Lodz, Katowice, Wroclaw and Poznan before concluding in the home of Solidarity, Gdansk.

The year 2046 will be a massive year for Polish-Canadians living in Mitakihara Town. The Polish Consulate-General in Vancouver will be moving its offices to downtown Mitakihara on March 1 of this year, and on April 4 of this year, Solidarity's Canadian offices will open in Madoka Square, on the 57th Anniversary of Poland's most powerful trade union being legalized once and for all.

On August 31, Mitakihara Town and Gdansk will officially be made sister cities. Finally, on the final day of Homecoming Week 2046 at Mitakihara University, Polish priest Jerzy Popieluszko will be canonized by His Holiness Pope John Paul III as St. George Popieluszko of Okopy. The mass will be simulacast live in the early morning at the Madoka Cathedral.

"I think it is...refreshing to know that we are now home to the largest community of Polish Canadians in British Columbia," said Dr. Kaname at a meeting with dignitaries in Gdansk at Solidarity headquarters. You may not know this, but the greatest ice hockey player that ever lived, Sir Wayne Gretzky, was Polish.

"The partnership Mitakihara University has had with the University of Gdansk since 2020 is a true testament to our continued commitment to finding new ways to help promote democracy and good govenment throughout all the states of Europe. With this being a significant year for Poland, we are excited at the partnership we have with Solidarity and we salute their legacy in helping change the world for decades to come."

The theme for this year's Homecoming Week has also been determined. The theme will simply be called: "Solidarity."
