Dear GRC Members:

Row Ontario Award Winners

Resilience and Perseverance Award: Nicole Bellefleur

Nicole’s outstanding resilience and perseverance during COVID 19 is evident in her dedication to LTR coaches, the growth of GRC, and ensuring the larger community continues to have an opportunity to experience the sport of rowing. Nicole’s welcoming style during a time that required limited socialization, brought smiles to participants/coaches/members. Her resilience and outstanding perseverance continually brought hope during challenging times and her quiet humbling leadership style truly demonstrates dedication to the sport of rowing.

Long Service Award: Julie Horrocks – 15 years

Volunteer Certificates: Joanne Ryks and Hans Hanse

Thank you all for everything you do for the club and congratulations on receiving these well-deserved awards. 

Gryphon Rowing

Another Gryphon Rowing Banquet has come and gone. Thank you to those who supported through the purchase of tickets, donation of silent auction items, or bidding on our silent auction. Fingers crossed next year this event can be in person. 

All were merged into one smoothly working machine; they were, in fact, a poem of motion, a symphony of swinging blades.

Thank you to those who work together to help GRC run smoothly. As recognized by the Row Ontario Award Winners we have dedicated members who contribute their time and energy to the upkeep and programs of GRC.

Take care,
