Volunteers Make a Difference


Volunteers are the heart and soul of RTO/ERO. Gerry Wagter has been providing our District Meetings with his melodious sounds for a number of years. When Jerry retired from Ridgetown High School, he took up music as a hobby and learned to play a number of brass and wind instruments. When OJ was still alive, Gerry played at OJ and Molly’s in Erieau. Making money was not the issue, he just loved to play! He also played at the Sunday brunches at Club Lentinas.

He did what we hope all retirees will do – stay active - by pursuing his love of music. He was ahead of his time! Recently, Gerry has been experiencing some health problems. We wish him a speedy recovery.

 Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything. Plato
