You're invited to congratulate Jessica from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Classroom, Level 2 at the John Rhodes Community Centre.
The informal come-and-go civic reception is to recognize Tuomela's outstanding performance at the 2004 Paralympics this fall.
She competed in the womenâ€™s 100-metre breaststroke, 200-metre individual medley, 100-metre freestyle, 100-metre backstroke and the 50-metre freestyle.
Tuomela also posted a medal performance at the 2000 Games in Sydney, Australia where she took silver in the 50-metre freestyle.
