Ron's Unforgettable Experience

Ron McLean is usually the guy going from office to office on Monday morning asking each staff how their weekend was, but not today... Today, Ron is the center of attention, with everybody commenting on his big appearance on the Global evening news. Ron takes so much pride in riding his scooter every weekend, and we couldn't be happier that Global took to the opportunity to showcase Ron's hobby. 

We are so happy for you Ron!
