I Am Rotary - Elizabeth Kelly

A new Rotarian to our club, Elizabeth recently did her classification talk as a Rental Manager. Born in Nordin, she was the only girl among three siblings, continuing her education to a 1978 MVHS graduation. That summer she met Terry Kelly, who she married six months later and joined him in The Pas, Manitoba as he started work at the local mill. For the next few decades they moved to various western communities with Terrys work, while Elizabeth took on a variety of administrative jobs in the education and petroleum industries. In 2011, they started their planned homeward move, purchasing Miramichi properties for a Commercial and Residential Rental Business, making the move in 2013. Near the end of 2014, Terry became ill and passed quickly in early 2015, leaving a large hole in her life which friends attempted to fill by having her come with them for a month to Cambodia to build Habitats for Humanity, teaching and other tasks. Climbing out of the black hole of grief was difficult, but she was able to do it while managing and expanding her business (including the construction of a new 5 plex in Doaktown). A desire to be more involved in the community and to meet more people lead to a phone call to Rotarian Michael Mersereau. She asked to attend a meeting as a guest, having been a Rotarian while in Red Deer AB. This has culminated in her becoming a Newcastle member earlier this fall, where she has dived right in on activities like the Purse Auction. Welcome to the club Elizabeth.

Rob Lehnert and MVHS Students speak on ADSN ICE Center

The ASDN ICE Centre is an Education Project created by the Anglophone North School District and NBCC Miramichi. The focus of the ASDN ICE Centre is to create a variety of career focused courses for High School students. 
By creating Dual Credit courses and Certificate courses to offer High School students the opportunity to earn Post-Secondary Education credits or Professional Certification while enrolled in High School. This helps reduce the financial need of students upon graduation and provides students with exposure to potential career pathways before graduating from High School.
