March - Welcome Daniela Likovsky and John Guillette, new members from Markham, ON.
We both are recently retired Information Technology consultants and now live in Harrow Ontario.  We enjoy gardening, home renovations, cooking, reading, swimming, sailing and travelling as well as entertaining our guests.  We are originally from Markham Ontario but decided to leave the GTA and retire sooner while the real estate market there was still hot.  The milder weather in Essex county is definitely a big plus as it gives us more time to spend outdoors.  Four children - daughter works at Point Pelee National Park and lives in Kingsville,  oldest son works/lives in Toronto, middle son works/lives in London Ontario and the youngest son is in the Canadian Military out of CFB Shilo Manitoba.
On another note, does anyone in the club play chess?  I miss playing the occasional game.
