I begin my year as President, the Oshawa and District Shrine Club
will be celebrating our 70th Anniversary! I would like to take this
opportunity to congratulate my new executive: Noble Carl Snider as
1st Vice President, Noble Dennis Urbanski as 2nd Vice President, and
Noble Leo Smith as 3rd Vice President.
I have guidance from some of our past presidents and I am looking forward to a successful year. Our new executives have met and are planning events for this year.
The Club is planning to host Mother’s Day Brunch, we want the support of all Units to make this event a success. It has been very successful in the past thanks to the Clown Unit. Please consider mentioning this event and our other events this year to your friends and family so they may meet Shriners and learn about what we do for our hospitals.
I look forward to seeing you there!
I trust that together we can have a great year! We hope you see many of you at our upcoming events, check our club events page and "like" us on Facebook for more information.
Our next event is our St. Patrick's Day dinner and dance. Saturday, March 15, 2014. Tickets are available in the office.
“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***.
If you know a child Shriners Hospitals might be able to help, call one of our toll-free patient referral lines between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Eastern Time.
