"I'll miss his friendship, ability to make people smile and laugh, his unique curling style ( Jack take off that baseball hat! If I can't see your eyes you sure as heck can't see my broom! Hahaha) and his total dedication to his family. I've had the honor of knowing Jack for 22 years and he was like family. I'll miss him." Mike Ross-Ross.
On March 28, 2014 Mike Pitre, Coordinator of Special Olympics Ottawa, presented a plaque to the City View Curling Club for its support of Special Olympics Curling since 1999. Club President, Ray Dinelle, accepted the plaque on behalf of the Club.
Mike noted that Club members were responsible for starting Special Olympics curling at City View fifteen years ago and club members have been involved in coaching our athletes ever since. City View has supported Special Olympics by donating ice time on Friday afternoons for the team to hold its practices and financial support has also been provided by the Men’s Day group.
Athletes and family members were on hand to say “Thank You” to City View and its members.
Roger Champagne, Cathy Clouthier, Gord Stockdale and Ron MacKinnon were there for the presentation. Other club members involved in Special Olympics curling but who could not attend are: Marian and Pierre Dupont who started Special Olympics curling at the club, current Head Coach Ulysse Nevraumont, Sharon Brehm and the later Margaret Woollings.
