President Paul introduced today’s speaker Jessie Gregory
President’s Updates and other business:
April 18th breakfast meeting is canceled due to joint lunch meeting with St. Catharines. The lunch will take place at Club Roma and will cost $35.
Please let President Paul know if you will be attending as the Club will have to prepare a single cheque to pay for all the lunches of those attending and collect your payment from you.
Father’s Day Roses These roses are a specially selected species that are grown locally in Dunnville and will be provided freshly cut for us to deliver on Saturday June 16th, the day before Father’s Day. Fort Erie has negotiated a special price of $20 per dozen DELIVERED. This is a fundraiser for our club, as we will realize $7 for every dozen we sell.
April 22nd is Earth Day and the Club will be planting trees, one for every Rotarian. One special tree will be planted by the Interact Club at E. L. Crossley in memory of Sharon Keller.
The friendship visit by Rotarians from South Africa will take place from June 27-29. There are 10 in the group, two couples and six individuals. The Rotarians plan to visit our famous falls along with other tourist sites in our region but they will need a bed for three nights. Your responsibility will be to provide a room and breakfast then transport them to a central spot each day where they will convene for a day of site seeing. Two of our members have offered to host so far. Please contact President Paul if you are able to assist.
The joint membership social on May 16th with the Welland Club will take place on May 16th stages. Southbrook Vineyards will be providing the wine and cheese. Please send names of invitees to president Paul so that invitations can be sent out. We need 75 names and hope to get 100 to attend.
Mudfest – Carolyn advised that there are 122 registrants thus far with the 11am slot being full. More are needed to fill the remaining slots and we should be farther ahead by now. Please keep sharing Mudfest posts on social media, as this helps keep the event top-of-mind.
Bob Eamer introduced today’s speaker Jessie Gregory whom he met at the YMCA gym.
Jessie has always been an athlete and wanted to be a police officer. Her life changed back in 2008 when she was involved in a hit and run while on duty as a security officer.
She suffered an incomplete spinal cord injury which left her unable to walk. Since then she has done everything she can to be able to walk again. Her determination has paid off and she now walks with the assistance of a Keeogo device and has become one of their ambassadors. Jessie started playing sledge hockey in 2011 and is the goalie for the Canadian Women's sledge hockey team. She is also a fitness coach and trainer and works at the YMCA. As well as being an athlete, Jessie is also a student and already has two college degrees and is currently enrolled in a program at Mohawk College.

For more information about Jessie she can be followed on Facebook at Tweeted to on Twitter at or simply send an email to
