Jon Donald (“JD”) has an affiliation with the Club dating back to the pre-merger Oak Bay Wanderers days when he played with a few of the Carson brothers, Gareth Rees, and many other long-termers, including the still-active Don Swainson. He is also the proud father of a former women’s prems player, Olivia Donald.
Jon is in his second year as the Club’s Corporate Secretary; a position he believes he was offered because he “writes English real good”. He and his wife Shelby are long time Oak Bay residents who live within walking distance of the Penny Farthing, their regular, neighborhood pub. They’re also enthusiastic fans of boating and travel; Shelby and Jon recently returned from the fantastic Langara Fishing Lodge in Haida Gwaii, where they were able to indulge both interests, having purchased the trip during the live auction held at the Club’s annual fundraising dinner (special thanks to Rick Bourne of Langara for donating TWO trips as part of this year’s event)
