Recently members of the Foundation’s Board of Directors travelled to Sault Ste. Marie to participate in one of the City’s 100th Anniversary celebrations. It was a special evening that paid tribute to Dr. Roberta Bondar on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of her space flight as Canada’s first woman astronaut and the world’s first neurologist in space. Take a look at one of the many greetings delivered that evening to the crowd of over 250 people, all of whom made donations to support the educational programs of The Foundation.

Organized under the direction of a team of volunteers chaired by Councillor Susan Myers, it was a first class event from start to finish. We were proud to attend and felt privileged to be part of The Foundation’s volunteer team. A big thank you goes to participants from the Sault community, the organizers and sponsors of the event, and the City’s leadership for their generosity and support on behalf of the citizens of this “Naturally Gifted” and special place Roberta calls home.
