Robert Eamer, one of our newest members, and former Rotarian, has had an interesting career with the OPP over 36 years, and today he shared some tidbits with us.   Robert retired as Chief Supt., Regional Commander for Eastern Ontario.   During his career he met interesting (sometimes dangerous) challenges, as Forensic Officer, setting up Automated Fingerprinting, Planning of Police Training etc.   As an Explosive Disposal Technician, Robert learned how to build bombs, before he could learn how to safely dismantle them. 

As a former Rotarian, Robert has served in several Eastern Clubs.   While at the Cataraqui - Kingston Club, he was awarded the Rotarian of the Year Award for initiating the Rotary Christmas Auction.  He also served as President of the club from 2001-2002, and became a Paul Harris Fellow in 2004.

 In his retirement days, Robert is still active in many organizations, both inside and outside policing.   Robert is also a Founding Director of the OPP Youth Foundation,  for which he clearly displayed much love and enthusiasm.

 Thanks to his wife, Rose, who has given Robert three daughters and several grand children,(some of whom live in this area) Robert was drawn to Fonthill and our Rotary Club.   We are happy and thankful to have you among us, Robert!
