I Am Rotary - Jack Christie

Originally from St. Stephen, Jack has Miramichi roots through his mother who was a McCarthy from Nelson. A graduate of Mount Allison in business and accounting, he obtained his Professional Accountant designation while working for Clarkes & Borden in Saint John. Jack cites the Bricklin receivership as one of the more interesting cases he was involved with during his time with this firm. Following Saint John, Jack went on to work in Barcelona Spain and in London Ontario, before coming to Miramichi to work on a computer system for Northumberland COOP in 1987. This contract work turned into a 26 year managerial position, looking after dairy, food preparation, and home supplies for the COOP and TimberMart until his retirement. Jack has been a member of the club since 1988, and has served as president, secretary, and assistant DG, as well as being involved in club activities. He is the current treasurer for both the Newcastle Rotary Club Foundation and Rotary District 7810. He was the charter treasurer for the local Hospital Foundation, and has also served as provincial president for the Association of Professional Accountants. Outside of Rotary and work, Jack has been married to Irene for 22 years, is an avid fan of the Toronto Maple Leafs and Blue Jays, and likes to travel (50+ countries and counting).

On Wednesday our club was honored to induct Catherine Flett (L), Tara Racette (M) and  Karen Howe (R) as new members to the Newcastle Rotary Club. 
There are several milestones that are life altering. We go through life so focused on career and family.  But at some point we realize that we must give back to society, to our community. We believe that joining Rotary is one of those life altering moments and we believe you to be leaders in your vocation and community! 
Fellow Rotarian Matt Doherty (R) performed the ceremony. Congratulations and welcome!! 😁

I Am Rotary - Karen Howe
Karen Howe was born in Miramichi and lived in Nelson. She has been married for 32 years to her husband Doug and has two children Adam and Rebecca. With past experiences as a cafeteria supervisor at both Miramichi Valley High School and Greta Green school, Karen at the age of 32 decided to travel to Moncton NB to obtain her degree in Civil Engineering Technology. Karen then worked in Halifax for a few years at both Marid Industries and RKO Industries but decided to become self employed in her home of Miramichi to be closer to her family. It was at that time at a Rotary Christmas party that she met her now employer Francis Malley of Des-Tek Inc. Karen became a member of the Newcastle Rotary this year and has already been involved in many of the clubs fundraisers and activities.

The Newcastle Rotary is proud to announce that our committee has provided the Miramichi Minor Football Association with a donation of $1000 that went towards the purchase of 4 new helmets. The helmets on display in the picture have the new logo which is the head of a MINOTAUR.  A minotaur is a beast from Greek mythology that is half human and half beast.  The beast portion resembles the head of a bull. Each helmet shown in the picture represents the portion of funds donated by Rotary and now have a Rotary logo attached to the back of each helmet. Thanks to Claude LaBerge, President MIRFA, for bringing back this amazing sport to the Miramichi!  The Newcastle Rotary is proud to support local youth education and sport.
