My name is Parker and I attended the HOBY Western Ontario 3 Day Seminar in 2015.
After leaving 3 Day, I felt so inspired, but wasn’t sure what to do with it. I knew I wanted to stay involved with HOBY, but wasn’t sure where to start. I then received an email advertising the HOBY Summer Reunion, now known as the Summer BETA. I thought to myself, “I guess this is a good place to start!”
I signed up to attend l, not really knowing what I was getting myself into. As it turns out, it was one of the best weekends of my entire Summer. I had so much fun hanging out with all the other students I met at 3 Day, as well as getting to meet other HOBY Alumni from previous years.
This was my launch pad into the rest of my involvement with HOBY. I went on to be a part of Western Ontario Junior Staff, now a part of the committee. I joined the HOBY Canada Board of Directors which has allowed me to plan this year’s HOBY Summer BETA 2023! Taking place on Sunday, June 11th from 11am-4pm at Stronach Arena & Community Centre in London, ON.
The BETA event will be an absolutely fantastic day hanging out with HOBY Alumni, playing games, making friendship bracelets, and enjoying a delicious lunch.I’m so grateful to be a part of HOBY Alumni, which has allowed me so many opportunities to stay involved and to make lifelong friends.
