I Am Rotary - Jordan Pinder

Our club had the pleasure of hearing from one of our newer members at todays meeting with his classification talk. 

Jordan was born and raised here in Miramichi. After finishing high school he studied at Dalhousie University where he earned a PhD in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. After working in a cancer research lab for 5 years, Jordan left his research career and started his photography business in Nova Scotia. Three years ago he moved back to Miramichi where he now lives with his wife and three children. He is an avid curler and has won five mens provincial championships, four out of Nova Scotia and one out of New Brunswick.

Jordan spoke about his decision to give up his research career for a more stable family life, citing the unpredictable and competitive source of work in the field. His wife is a local dentist, while Jordan splits his time between caring for his young family and his photography business. Early on he recognized that creativity is needed to set you apart from the many people with cameras around you. Based on the examples of his work below, we think he has mastered that aspect.

Finally, to our fellow Rotarians out there, when is the next District Curling Bonspiel.......?

The Rotary Club of Newcastle had the pleasure of hearing from guest speakers Roman Francis and Emmanuel Newman about their new business venture Bloom Coffee. Roman is going into Grade 12 at Miramichi Valley High School while Emmanuel recently graduated from James M. Hill.
During the recent school closure, while home learning became optional, Roman continued his Entrepreneurship class at the ASDN ICE Centre, with assignments and online check-ins each week. He saw the pandemic as an opportunity to begin a coffee business where he would deliver his own brand of coffee directly to your door. Despite the fact that the school year is now complete, Roman continues to operate and grow his business. The popularity of his coffee has become so strong that he was able to hire his friend, Emmanuel Newman, as a sales rep. and consultant. Bloom Coffee has not only become a passion of theirs, but also a way for them to give back to their community. They donate 10% of all proceeds to the Miramichi Youth House.
The motto of Bloom Coffee is Giving Our Youth a Chance to Bloom. Recently, Roman and Emmanuel were able to acquire shelf space at Mill Cove Coffee and Creative Grounds.  You can also order Bloom Coffee via their facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/MyBloomCoffee
