Wow, where has the time gone? Its summer already and many great events at the club have come and gone. We held a Yuk Yuk comedy night, steak supper, Mother's Day brunch, annual golf tounament and recently the beef BBQ. We raised money for the club and Shriners Hospital. There are still more events to come and we hope to see many of you having a great time at our events. Please come out to the Minibike/Tractor unit's corn roast and BBQ on August 17th. We are also holding a Murder Mystery dinner at the club in September. Please see the club events page for additional details. 'Like' us on Facebook to keep up on the news and upcoming events. The Shriners circus is rolling through the GTA so please take some time to attend and help out the Shriners Hospitals. Have a great summer.
“Together We Can”
President Douglas Sumerville, 2014
The Oshawa and District Shrine Club is a part of the parent umbrella of Rameses Shrine Temple #33 in Toronto. Which in turn is part of the world’s greatest philanthropy based in Tampa Florida. We operate 22 children’s hospitals. Shriners Hospitals provide the highest quality medical care to children “regardless of the patient’s or family’s ability to pay”. Specialty treatment in burns, pediatric orthopedics, polio, loss of limbs, spinal cord injuries and neuromuscular disorders as well as the leaders in cleft lip and palate reconstruction. Our care is given up to age 18 and in many cases beyond if the child is in our hospital care program prior to 18. The Shriners are committed to providing care to children worldwide and we work in conjunction with many Community Care Organizations to assist children in much needed treatments and care. We are in the process of building a state of the art hospital in Montreal which will be opening in the near future.
The Oshawa and District Shrine Club has a beautiful hall that we rent out for Weddings, Birthdays, Banquets, Anniversaries and Celebration of Life ceremonies with full bar facilities and our very own catering services. Handicap accessible and newly updated washroom facilities.
Consider our hall for your future needs as the money raised in using the hall also goes to the direct care of ***OUR KIDS*** Watch for us in the community parades, cheer us on as it makes our attendance worthwhile knowing that you are in fact helping raise money for the hospitals. The statue on our front lawn epitomizes each of us. If you know a child that could be in need of our services, please contact us at the numbers listed on the web site.
We live by the motto ***No man stands so tall as when he stoops to
help a child***.
