Guest speaker - Sheila Rees  

Regional Director "Make-A-Wish"

Our club secretary, Kathy Verduyn, presented Sheila Rees, the regional director for the Toronto and Central Ontario Chapter of "Make-A-Wish" with a certificate of appreciation for being our guest speaker on Thursday, May 7th. Sheila was truly passionate about the organization's mission to bring hope, strength, and joy to children with life-threatening medical conditions through the granting of magical, life-transforming wishes. Her presentation was informative, inspiring, insightful and laid the groundwork for "a one time only" fundraiser in support of Make-A-Wish and its mission from June to September. More details to follow in the weeks ahead.
In her role with Make-A-Wish, Sheila is driven by the foundation's vision to grant the wish of every eligible child in Canada and advocates that a wish-come-true is not just "a nice to have" but "a must have" for a critically-ill child and their family.25 club members and friends of Rotary who attended this luncheon meeting certainly gained a deeper appreciation of "the power of a wish".
