November 7, Speakers
The style of Roger’s writing reflects a story based approach to telling history. Through interviews and research he captures the experiences of our Veterans, incorporating their personal stories into the history. His unique approach to history brings the story to life, transporting the reader into the crew of the ship.
Roger was a Naval Officer in the Canadian Armed Forces Reserve. His interest in the Royal Canadian Navy began as a Sea Cadet in Kitchener. Later he volunteered with the Navy League of Canada, becoming the Area Officer for Eastern Ontario.
For the past 33 years, Roger has been a Paramedic in the Quinte area of Eastern Ontario and was decorated by the Governor General of Canada with the Exemplary Service Medal. Roger, with his wife Rhonda reside near Trenton, Ontario and together they enjoy travel and photography.
Roger sums up his work, “I am a storyteller who can save your life.”
Major General Roehmer is a longstanding member of The Probus Club of Collingwood.
This is the time of year we remember our veterans, those who have served their country, and those who serve today.
A video, Lest We Forget.
We are off to a good start, thanks to our volunteers, and the co-operation of those of you had your mug shot done! Excellent.
We will continue this at our November meeting
So, for those who haven’t been ‘shot’ yet, please give us a hand in getting this on it’s way!
It’s a very worthwhile project!
