Library Campaign cabinet that
raised more than $7 million. I
was also a member of the 2007
Hockeyville committee that helped
North Bay showcase its love of
hockey and community spirit. The
city received $60,000 for arena
upgrades, hosted a pre-season
NHL exhibition game between
New York Islanders and Atlanta
Thrashers, and was featured in a
CBC Television special.

A: Here are five people who have
mentored me: Peter Gavan, Barb

mentor who can help them at different
stages of their lives.

together to help out each other.
Q: What else would you like to
A: I have always had a dream I would be

group of people who will be able to
help North Bay people to make their
dreams come true.
