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

The club met today for the first time since March 18th. Rotarian Kevin Matthews volunteered the basement of The Point Church where we could socially distance for the small group who attended, as well as allowing those unable to make it to zoom in. We discussed our tulip bulb fundraiser, our tent rental service, and the upcoming Purse Auction, as well as reaquainting our vocal chords with the singing of OCanada. Hopefully this is another sign of things starting to get back to some sort of normal.

Cradle to Career Partners Launch Camp @ Home Activities
What are your kids doing this summer?

If you are looking to keep your kids entertained this summer, Cradle to Career Miramichi wants to help. 

“Since most camps are cancelled this summer, we are doing the next best thing,” said Mayor Adam Lordon, co-chair of Cradle to Career Miramichi. ”We are bringing camp activities to kids at home, for free!”
Cradle to Career Miramichi has lined up partners to bring camp activities at home, like free arts and crafts, online reading clubs, crazy online STEM projects, fun literacy and numeracy activities, tutoring and even sports activities at home.

“Our FREE literacy initiatives available by our partners provide high-quality enrichment opportunities to elementary students in Miramichi. This coordinated partner effort gives students the supplementary bridge that keeps learning in their world all summer long and prepares them for more in the fall,” said Lordon.

“We want all kids to be able to play and have fun this summer and engage their imaginations and sense of curiosity,” said Senator David Adams Richards, co-chair Cradle to Career Miramichi. “ And we especially want to help children who often lose ground over the summer because they don’t have access to programs that engage learning.”

To find out more about the programs contact:
Frontier College – to learn about FREE ‘Camp in a Box’ and Reading Clubs and Family Literacy Days contact  summerliteracycamp2020@gmail.com

We also want to thank our other collaborating partners:

Department of Social Development

Eel Ground First Nations

Elementary Literacy Friends

NBCC Miramichi

Newcastle Rotary Club
