Last May, Anne Simpson, Past Queen of Sphinx Temple No. 116 Daughters of the Nile and member of the Khartum Ladies’ Auxiliary, was honored to receive a very special letter from Gino Berretta, Chair, Board of Governors of the Montreal Shriners Hospital for Children. The letter stated that they were honored to present Anne with the 3rd Star Gold Book Society Award in thanks and appreciation for her continued support. Anne’s generous support allows the Montreal Hospital to continue to improve the lives of so many children, thus helping these young patients to realize their full potential.
On Saturday, September 20th, 2014 at the Sphinx Temple No. 116, Daughters of the Nile Fashion Show Fundraiser, Past Potentate Illustrious Sir Jack Hooper recognized Anne with this presentation in honor of her longstanding support and invaluable generosity to the World’s Greatest Philanthropy – Shriners Hospitals for Children.
Congratulations Anne and thank you for all you do!

Our first meeting of 2015 took place on January 19th. Regular business was conducted first followed by the Installation of Officers for 2015. As your President for 2015, I look forward to an enjoyable and successful year. I want to welcome all of my Executive and Committee Members and wish you a wonderful year ahead as well. Stay tuned for announcements and updates to our Calendar.
Best wishes to all,
Thanks to all who turned out for our annual Christmas Luncheon and meeting. Thank you also to all who helped make the event so very enjoyable! We had delicious sandwiches from Rae & Jerry's as well as veggies and dainties! Always such a treat!
Hard to believe this year is almost over - it has flown by. We had several annual reports presented at the meeting portion of the afternoon including election of the new Executive. Warm congratulations to all! Installation will take place in January!
At this time, I wish to extend very warm Season's Greetings to all and the Best for a Happy & Healthy 2015!
