Polio Surviour

Doug will be speaking to us about his personal experience with Polio...

I was born in Hagersville and raised on a farm outside Jarvis.  I attended Hagersville High School then on to Seneca College in Toronto, graduating in 1974 with a Resource Management Technology diploma.

I was employed at Bell Canada in the Outside Plant Engineering Department and spent almost 31 years in various management positions ending as a Senior Project Manager.  I was offered and accepted early retirement package Dec 2002 and have spent my retirement working in the civil construction industry, and volunteering in the community on various non-profit organizations.  Currently I am an elder of St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Hagersville, a board member of the Grand Erie Business Centre which provides funding and support for small businesses in Haldimand and West Lincoln and I am also a board member on the South and Metcalfe Non-Profit Housing Corporation which includes Quetzal Family Homes, an entity that provides safe accommodations and programs for women and children escaping family violence.  Together with another person, I organize and run a popular community badminton club in Hagersville High School.  I have been involved in the political arena and ran as a Liberal candidate in the 1999 Provincial election.  I have participated in two overseas missions- one with Habitat for Humanity in Honduras and one with Medical Ministry International helping with eye surgeries in Ethiopia. I have also been a past member of the Haldimand Hydro board before it was sold to Ontario Hydro.

I have a blended family with my wife Flora.  Together, we have five adult children: two of whom are in Ontario, one in Alberta, one in BC along with two grandsons and one in the UK with a grand-daughter.  Between spending as much time as we can with our children and grand-children, we also spend a significant amount of time with our elderly fathers. Family is important to us.
