President Heather Cox showed a documentary that features Jackson in the Gliding Stars Program in Findlay.

-Gliding Stars, Inc. was originally founded in 1994 by Elizabeth M. O'Donnell. Ms. O'Donnell is an accomplished figure skater who turned her talents toward providing an extensive program of adaptive ice skating for people of all ages and challenges.
She did this so that they could experience a part of normal life and the life-changing effects of regular exercise, social interaction, teamwork, family sharing, and a few hours of fame during the end-of-season Ice Extravaganza performance!.

The Ada Kiwanis Club meets at 12:00 noon on Tuesdays at McIntosh Center, ONU. Guests are always welcome.
