Hello OutGROW OutPLAY families! We are so excited to be a part of the OutGROW OutPLAY family. The concept of bringing people together to Shop, Sell and Save while supporting our community with charity fundraising makes this venture a win for all involved! Ray - I am originally from Kelowna, BC and moved to Nova Scotia to start a life with Sara. I spent 15 years working in the construction industry where building technology and energy efficiency have always inspired my career. An avid angler, I have many fond memories of fishing the beautiful waters of Nova Scotia, and of the good friends made on the river banks. Since starting a family twelve years ago the hooks have gotten a little rusty, however the opportunity to stay home and raise my children has been my greatest endeavour and reward. The importance of family and community is clear.
Sara - I was raised in Nova Scotia and met Ray while attending college in Edmonton. After several years in the hospitality industry I started administrative work for a local fitness facility managing the client base and supervising staff. Presently, I am an Operations Assistant in Marketing & Communications at Nova Scotia Business Inc. Volunteering has always been a fulfilling and important activity to me and I have done administration for Scouts Canada. My free time is spent with my family. We enjoy camping, road trips and outdoor activities.
We look forward to meeting and sharing our aspirations with other like-minded families as we take OutGROW OutPLAY to exciting new heights. Hosting the OutGROW OutPLAY event is a challenging endeavour for us and, as partners, we look forward to offering a positive impact on our community.
Ray and Sara Schlief and our children, Koen and Brooke.
