We Couldn’t Do All That We Do Without The Help Of Our Volunteers

1

It’s National Volunteer Week, and on April 10th, we hosted our annual Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast to thank all our wonderful volunteers for all their hard work throughout the year. For the past two years, we’ve also invited our Past Presidents to join us for our breakfast because without their hard work, we would not be the successful Chamber we are today.

We held our breakfast at Lock Stop Cafe in Buckhorn this year. Our guests enjoyed croque monsieur sandwiches (peameal & eggs), an omelette bar (choice of veggies and cheese), yogurt parfaits (cappuccino and mandarin orange, stawberry & blueberry), fresh baked muffins and scones, fruit kebabs, specialty coffee and hand-crafted teas.

Thanks to our Professional Development Sponsor, Lynn Woodcroft, Sales Rep, Royal LePage. Her sponsorship makes events like this possible. We’d also like to thank everyone who attended the event and Lock Stop Cafe for hosting us.

Our Guest Speaker

Our guest speaker this year was Hannah Darling, a 22-year-old Canadian Olympic Bronze Medalist (2016 Rio Olympics – Rugby Sevens) from Warsaw. She started playing rugby at 14 years old, and at 16, moved to British Columbia to train full time with the national program. She went on to win a Pan-Am gold medal in Toronto in 2015 and a bronze medal at the 2016 Rio Olympics. After moving back to Ontario, Hannah announced her retirement from Canada’s rugby sevens team on October 14th to focus on her mental health. Having accomplished so much at just 22 years old, Hannah is a true role model and inspiration for Canadians of all ages.

During our breakfast, our attendees got to see the various medals that Hannah won throughout her rugby career- including her Rio Olympics Bronze Medal! She also talked to our volunteers about her Olympic experience, her rugby training, her take on being called to as an inspiration, the importance of the Kawarthas and our community, and moving away from home at such a young age.

Having retired from Canada’s Rugby Sevens team last year, she’s now looking to go back to school in the fall. She’s applied for programs at Fleming College’s Frost Campus, as she knows that she definitely wants to work outside. She also mentioned that she’s wants to help implement a program that teaches kids how to properly tackle when playing rugby, hoping to reduce the amount of concussions players receive in the sport and reduce the stigma surrounding rugby and concussions.
