Gold at the Brockville Country Club

Wednesday evening, April 14, 2010 at the Brockville Country Club, was special. Have you seen an Olympic Gold Metal? Have you touched one? Have you had the chance to talk to an Olympian? To listen to an Olympian tell what it takes to be a gold metal winner ... not once, but three times!
Well members of the Brockville Ad & Sales Club had such an opportunity. For the guest speaker at the Ad & Sales was Jayna Hefford, gold metalist on the Canada Women's Hockey Team.
Jayna has played in over 200 international games for Team Canada winning numerous gold and silver medals. She scored the winning goal against Team USA in Salt Lake City. And was the assistant captain for Team Canada as they won gold in Vancouver at the Winter Olympics.
Jayna's talk was most interesting and highlighted the commitment and dedication needed to reach such lofty heights. Thanks to the Ad & Sales Club for bringing Jayna to Brockville. It was a special night at the Brockville Country Club.
