Congratulations to JMCC Staff member Ivan Petkovic and his Family!Date Posted: Monday, November 12, 2012
On October 29, 2012 Ivan and Christine Petkovic were presented with a memorial gift from Chuck Bondy and the Miracle League of Amherstburg, inscribed 'Founding Members'. Ivan, who is a JMCC Facility staff member, his wife Christine and their son, Trajan, a client of JMCC, began creation and construction of Canada's First Accessible Baseball Diamond and Miracle League in the spring of 2007 with the assistance of Rotary Club of Amherstburg and the Amherstburg Cardinals Baseball Team. "The Dream Fields" later partnered with the Town of Amherstburg, and with consultation with representatives from Sledge Team Canada, Ontario Sledge and the local Ice Bullets Club, the new accessible Amherstburg United Communities Credit Union Recreation Complex was built. Ivan and Christine both resigned from the Board of The Miracle League of Amherstburg in 2012 to pursue other projects that promote accessible sports with the Ontario Sledge Hockey Association, Parasports Ontario and the development of the Windsor Essex Accessible Sports Council. Congratulations to Ivan and his family!
