BTHC FOUNDATION DREAMING BIG
The Boundary Trails Health Centre Foundation Board of Directors has been discussing the need for expansion at Boundary Trails Health Centre. With the communities growth, we know that expansion is in the future. It is our hopes that we can team up with the RHA one day to make this a reality. We realize that this process could take years, but we are ready to begin the fundraising now, with the “Building For The Future” Campaign. All proceeds from this years banquet will be going towards future expansion.
Jon Montgomery knows all about dreaming big and he has a story to tell.
Just over one year ago, no one knew the name “Jon Montgomery”. Six years ago he quietly began his journey into the world of Skeleton with hopes of competing in the 2010 Olympics. On February 19, 2010, his dreams became a reality when he took home gold for Canada. This young man from Russell, MB., stole the hearts of not only Canadians, but of the world, with his fun-loving nature and passion for success. Oprah was just the beginning of the whirl-wind to follow.
Since winning Gold, Jon’s life has been busy. From taking part in the Juno’s to spending the summer recording a Discovery Channel special entitled Best. Trip. Ever. Flying with the Snowbirds in B.C. and cage diving with Great White sharks in South Africa. He even had time to propose to fellow Olympian Darla Deschamps amongst it all. He has been travelling the world competing and training and hopes to take home another Gold in 2014 in Sochi.
GOLF WITH JON!
Congratulations to our raffle ticket winner Mike Friesen from Altona. He and a friend will be enjoying a round of golf with Jon Montgomery at Minnewasta Golf and Country Club.
