At the heart of the success of the Bell Warriors Football Club is our tireless volunteers and those that help keep our great sport ‘Affordable For All‘ by making generous contributions. Scotty’s Corner Diner, in Bells Corners Nepean, was celebrated last night for doing both!
Scott Statham and his wife Jodi Statham are owners of the bustling Scottty’s Corner Diner. Scotty in his younger years was actually a player for the Warriors. Years later, when his and Jodi’s boy Logan was old enough, the Stathams came home to the Warriors in a BIG WAY. Scotty has been a key volunteer and coach for over a decade now and his wife Jodi bled Warriors’ Blue and Yellow. She did everything for everyone all the time and always with enthusiasm and a glowing smile. Their daughter Makayla was also part of the Warriors family to the extent that she was our inaugural Volunteer of the Year winner in 2012.
More recently, Jodi and Scotty started a new business in Bells Corners, Scotty’s Corner Diner, but they still found the time to support our club. Even though they were time-strapped and likely heavily invested in their own business launch, Scotty’s Corner Diner agreed to coordinate our game-day canteens. When it was said and done at year end to tally the invoices owed, we were told, “It’s on us. Thank you for what the Warriors do in our community.”
Although Jodi and Scotty would not accept our money, the Warriors wanted them to realize how much we care about their thoughtfulness, kindness and tireless commitment to our youth, our community, our players and our 64 year-old football club. At the 2019 Volunteer Appreciation Night held at The ALE – Amberwood Lounge & Eatery (Stittsville), the Stathams were given a special gift. In the drop-box frame is our a Warriors Mosquito Jersey (which was sponsored by Scotty’s Corner Diner). The jersey was #66, the same number worn by their son Logan in his days with the Warriors. Also enclosed was acknowledgement of their business as a GOLD SPONSOR of the Warriors and a family photo with their family all adorned in Warriors Blue and Yellow.
