I scream, you scream

Some 100 kids dropped by the Eastern Townships Karnak Shrine Club for an after school ice cream party.  The kids loved the FezMobile and gobbled up the ice cream. There was loads of fun including a performance by a clown from the Alzado circus.

We met four local children who are being cared for by the Canada Shriners Hospital.  We also chatted with Dexter Larose who joined the Shriners Fraternity because of the exceptional care he received at the hospital when he was a child in the 1950s. 

Around 5 p.m. out came the BBQ and the chefs started cooking up a storm the hotdogs and hamburgers were complimented by a slew of salads and desserts prepared by the ladies. The room was full of happy dinners. The brownies were delicious. Thank you to the Legion for their hospitality.
Once the plates were cleared away, local band Random Chance started to perform. Thank you to the band members for graciously donating their time and energy. The dance floor was filled with people boogying to Long Tall Sally, Its gotta be rocking roll music and other 50’s and 60’s classics.
Thank you to JP Marchand and his fellow Shriners for their hospitality and thank you to the residents of Sutton for the generous donations towards the Shriners Hospital for Children—Canada and the Exceptional Care Odyssey.
