When it comes to pitching in, the Quotarians of Owen Sound, Ontario, are ready to take to the field…the soccer field, that is! Not willing to sit on the sidelines, club members got into the game by sponsoring a children’s team from the “under twelve” division. While their team finished in third place, they were able to capture the gold medal during the playoffs. The final game was a “real nail-biter” as the Quota team took the lead in the final moments and scored the winning goal—all to the delight of Quota members cheering in the stands. In the photo, above, past Owen Sound club president Jean Wilson gives her grandson, Marshall Veroni, a congratulatory hug as he savors both his gold medal and his ice cream treat provided by club members.
While the children were winners on the field, club members championed an important topic on the sidelines—instructing the youngsters on protecting their ears and ways to prevent hearing loss. Owen Sound Quotarians prove that we are all gold winners when we share with kids.
