Da krv nije voda i da se dobar glas daleko čuje svjedoči prinova u novoosnovanoj poljičkoj udruzi Savez za Poljica – gospodin Franck Mate Alfirević –
čije prebivalište se nalazi na 11.000 km udaljenom otoku Réunionu u Indijskome oceanu, 700 km istočno od Madagaskara i 200 km jugozapadno od Mauricijusa i koji uz to tek uči hrvatski jezik.
 
Franck je, naime, francuski Poljičanin koji živi i radi u ovom francuskom prekomorskom departmanu, a svoje poljičko porijeklo otkrio je prije dvadesetak godina u potrazi za ocem kojega, nažalost, nije upoznao. No zato je otkrio i upoznao postojbinu svojih predaka te kao filmski producent po profesiji, najavio snimanje dokumetarnog filma o Poljicima.
 
Kako je internetska stranica Saveza za Poljica www.poljica.hr odigrala ulogu posrednika, logičan epilog našeg nedavnog susreta i druženja sa Franckom pri obilasku zavičajnih mu Zvečanja bilo je njegovo pristupanje našoj Udruzi, pa mu stoga i na ovaj način poručujemo: Dobrodošao među svoje, dragi Franck!

BLOOD IS THICKER THAN WATER
 
The fact that blood is blood and that good reputation travels far, can be seen in the new member of our newly founded Alliance for Poljica – mr. Franck Mate Alfirević – a resident of Reunion, an island and region of France in the Indian Ocean, located 700 km east of Madagascar, 200 km southwest of Mauritius, and 11.000 km east of Croatia, the land of his ancestors, whose mother tongue Franck has started to learn only recently.
 
He came to learn about his Poljica ancestry some twenty years ago while searching for his father whom he unfortunately never met. Franck is French by birth and Croatian by ancestry, and although he never managed to find his sought-after father, he did discover an unknown land of his ancestors and, being in the film-making profession, decided to make a documentary film about the Poljica municipality.
 
Since our internet pages of the Alliance for Poljica www.poljica.hr played a crucial intermediary role in his ancestral quest, the logical next step, following our recent meeting with Franck while he visited his native village of Zvečanje, was to have him become a member of our Alliance.
 
On this occassion, we would like to express the following heartfelt welcome, on behalf of all Alliance members: Welcome among your own people, dear Franck!
