Cheryl Bernard set for talk in Spruce Grove

On Thurs, Feb. 26, Olympian Cheryl Bernard will be in Spruce Grove giving a talk to the Rotary Club entitled “You Hold The Pen.”

The skip of Canada’s silver medal winning curling team at the 2010 Winter Olympics will talk about making decisions, both on the ice and off of it, and how doing so effectively can have an enormous impact.

“My theme is about choices, and that you have control over how your life story unfolds,” Bernard said. “I want to tell people that sport is so much more about the journey and not the final prize, that medal or Stanley Cup.”

Bernard’s curling career has certainly taken her on quite the journey. The Grande Prairie native won two provincial titles before she turned 30, getting the chance to represent Alberta at the Scotties Tournament of Hearts, finishing second in 1996.
