Side by Each, March 25th:  Figure Skating

We will have 1 guest speaker joining us, Neil Carpenter.

Neil Carpenter has a wealth of stories and memories about Figure Skating from world wide experiences and in particular from Orillia that he is going to share. His accomplishments as a Canadian and World Class Figure Skater are a tribute to hard work and dedication. After his illustrious Figure Skating career he wondered how one can find fulfillment in anything else. Well he certainly came up with the right answer and Coaching was the answer. Neil became a renowned coach from his associations with Doug Leigh, Brian Orser to Holland as their National  Coach and lastly to Rotary Place here in Orillia

Please come and join so many folks of the same elk that want to hear Neil tell his stories and of course we will go around the room to hear your own short Figure Skating story.
