Wonderbolt is proud to announce our new patron
Margot Grant Reid – Wonderbolt Honorary Patron
Wonderbolt Circus is delighted to welcome Margot Reid as the new Honorary Patron of Wonderbolt Circus. Margot is a lifelong lover of the circus. Awestruck by the circus at a tender age, her interest was further sparked through her parents’ friendship with one of the originators of the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus. She has continued her interest in the circus over the years by being an enthusiastic supporter of Wonderbolt’s many activities.
Margot has served with more than 20 volunteer boards, including more than forty years volunteering with the Newfoundland Division of the Canadian Cancer Society, several of those as president of the Society and as a member of the national board of directors. She has also served on the Newfoundland Medical Board (1976-88) and the board of the Janeway Child Health Centre (1964-73).
Born in St. John's, Margot attended Dalhousie University and the Royal Victoria Hospital School of Nursing. She was named Jaycee Citizen of the Year in 1973, YM-YWCA Woman of Distinction in 1988 and a member of the Order of Canada in 2001. In addition she was awarded a LLD from Memorial University in 2013.
We are delighted that Margot has become a member of our Wonderbolt family.
