Community involvement - I'm currently the past-president of Kenora Kinsmen, and a board member at St. Andrew's and the Keewatin Curling Club. I volunteer with the Kenora AAA Midget Thistles hockey teams (in the penalty box where I belong). I've also helped with Harbourfest concerts, KidZone and most recently the boat parade. I spent six years with TryLight Theatre, helped create the Making Kenora Home advocate group for affordable housing. Following the burning of the Adams block, I offered to help with a long-term plan for the Fellowship Centre emergency shelter. Over the last 13 years in Kenora, I've helped organize a Morrisseau retrospective at Sunset Gallery, served as head box official for the North American First Nations hockey tournament, and chaired Relay For Life.
