Bruce Tupper
Bruce Tupper is a (mostly) retired business owner and life long Nova Scotian and is currently serving as Chairman of the national franchising system, Jani King Canada, which is headquartered in Kentville. Bruce has an unhealthy addiction to anything automotive and usually has a fleet of very silly cars.

Having been involved in a number of community volunteer organizations over the years, Bruce was impressed with the simplicity and effectiveness of the 100 Men Who Give A Damn idea and looks forward to joining with other Valley men “who give a damn” to make a positive impact on our communities……besides, he couldn’t resist joining a group with “Damn” in its name.

John Lohr
John Lohr is a life long farmer and business owner from Canning. He is Farmer John in Farmer Johns Herbs , selling summer Savory and spice mixes across Canada.  John has held many volunteer positions in his church and community over the years. He currently is serving as the MLA for Kings North in the Nova Scotia Legislature. He is very pleased to be a founding member of 100 Men who give a Damn! Annapolis Valley.

Greg Coldwell
Greg Coldwell is an almost retired farmer from Port Williams who is now involved with rentals and a self storage business. He has been involved with numerous community and farm-based organizations at both the local and national level

Greg feels this group should be a force to make a real difference in the local community while only taking up approximately four hours of time per year. If it does, the entire area will benefit and ‘yes, we will show we give a damn!’.

Joel Stoddart
Joel Stoddart is a 36 year-old New Minas-ian who currently serves as the Business Development Manager at Careforce Home Health Services. A native of Shelburne County, Joel relocated to the Annapolis Valley to attend Acadia University in 1998 and has been here ever since. He has served on a number of non-profit boards, including the Clean Annapolis River Project, Deep Roots Music Cooperative, and the former Nova Scotia Home Care Association.

Joel has always ‘given a damn’ but is looking forward to proving it now with a series of $100 charitable donations.
