50TH ANNIVERSARY LAND O’ LAKES CRUISERS DANCE

Sunday, 16 September 2018, proved to be a very fun day as the Shriners were the welcome guests of the Land O’ Lakes Cruisers as they held their 50th Anniversary at the Tweed Curling Club with around 300 fans in attendance.  Cathy Whalen and her band honoured us and the Shriners Hospital for Children – Canada with donations in excess of $5,000 for the Hospital in recognition of the treatment that her Grandson Nolan had received for 15 years in our Hospital in Montreal.  It made the Nobles and their Ladies proud to be there and our Secretary of the Board of Governers for the the Hospital Noble John Neil who was very happy to receive the monies on behalf of the Hospital.  A big thanks to Noble Don Gillis for coordinating this event with the Cruisers and to our Nobles and their Ladies who attended.

TRENT VALLEY SHRINE CLUB PICNIC STIRLING 03 SEPTEMBER 2018

Lady Kathy and I were pleasantly surprised for our first visit to a Trent Valley Shrine Club picnic meeting yesterday in Stirling at the Fairgrounds. Next time I will remember to bring my fez (how embarassing). There were over 70 Nobles and Ladies in attendance for a beautiful day under the sun. Thank goodness we had some breeze to cool us down. The food was excellent and it was another great opporunity to meet the Nobles and their Ladies from other Shrine Clubs which included our Belleville and District Shrine Club, Lakeshore Shrine Club, Kingston Shrine Club and Oshawa Shrine Club. Thank you Noble President Richard Loveless and your Nobility for the invite and great time.
