I was born and raised in this beautiful community of Stratford, Ontario and I am very blessed to have seen how the people of Stratford pull together to make it a better place to live. It is now my turn to give back to this community and I am a firm believer in paying it forward. By getting to know the people in your community and working together so that all our citizens can experience a better way of living, is a win win situation.
The following groups/charities are just a few that I belong to or volunteer with.
Rotary Club of Festival City Stratford
I have recently become a member of the Rotary Club of Festival City Stratford and have jumped right in with volunteering for their annual Spaghetti Fundraiser Event and also helping out in the community volunteering with the Dairy Expo through this club. I am looking forward to all the opportunities this club provides to the many people of our community.
I am very excited and pleased that myself and my colleague Toni McLean are the co-chairs of this amazing group. We are fortunate to live in a community that believes in supporting our residents. This program supports Women in abusive situations, start over and feel good about themselves, knowing the community is here to help them get back on their feet again.
Canadian Cancer Society
I have been volunteering with the local chapter for the past 4-5 years and getting out in the community to raise awareness is key. Here are a few pictures from the Relay for Life, the Daffodil Campaign and the Neon Colour Run.

Home and Company Real Estate Volunteering in the Community
