When he was six years old, Darshan Geer sat in on his older brother Satya's dance class. It turned out to be a pivotal moment in his young life. I was so interested in it, he said. I was just watching. When I got home, I said to mom 'I want to dance can I dance?' Geer is now a 13-year-old accomplished competitive dancer at Extreme Dance Studio in Coniston. Mostly homeschooled, he's entering Grade 9 at Sudbury Secondary School in September, where he'll major in dance in the school's arts program.

Sudburian and foodie Stephanie Pich has created a way for local restaurants to take the lead in providing the advantage above the rest, with a secret dining club. Sudbury Secret Foodies was formed to act as a fun resource to show where the local food-loving Sudburians are eating, what they are eating and how their experience was. The way it works is Pich created an anonymous survey for each foodie to complete upon their dining experience. Each foodie has a unique User ID and each survey is completely confidential. The survey identifies five factors (Food, Service, Ambiance, Value for $, Overall Score, Noise Level), which is later compiled into reports that can be shared with the restaurants upon request.
