Debbie Awde President

263.JPGMy husband Duncan and I live in a little town north east of Newmarket and bought our cottage on Skootamatta 4 years ago. We both had the dream of owning a cottage since childhood. Lucky we came across someone on a run who directed us to our cottage as we were lost when looking for the property. After looking at about 40 cottages over the summer, as soon as we drove in the driveway and saw the lake I said "this is it!"

Our 3 girls Savannah, Charlotte and Florence are growing up fast at ages 18, 16 and 13 and enjoy their summers at Skootamatta and the winter is filled with activities including competitive level hockey. Florence has travelled as far as Stockholm, Sweden to play hockey!

Duncan has a career in Architecture and I work in Toronto as Senior Manager, Operations at TD Bank in the Merchant Services Division. I am very happy to have taken on the role of President of the SDRA and I am proud at how much the team has accomplished!
