Jessica Tuomela, paralympic swimmer extraordinaire, has recently returned home to the Sault.
To honour her performance at the 2004 Paralympic Games in Athens, Mayor John Rowswell and City Council is inviting everyone to a civic reception on Wednesday, December 15.
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 women’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.
