Congratulations to First Lady of Khartum Shrine, Georgette Holberg, for an incredibly successful Circle of Friends Brunch. There were 19 tables in all, with unique and different themes, amazingly decorated. Many who attended even wore costumes to coincide with their table theme! Looking forward to next year!

As a supporter of Khartum Ladies' Auxiliary, CN wishes to bring awareness to the public about Rail Safety Week. Although Rail Safety Week is officially April 28th to May 4th this year, Rail Safety should be a priority every week of the year.

A lovely evening was held at Khartum Shrine House which included a delicious dinner consisting of Greek salad, roast beef and dessert. First Lady of Khartum, Georgette Holberg brought greetings on behalf of Illustrious Sir Rick Holberg.
President Cathy and Past President Eve-Anne Kristjanson presented 25 year pins to PP Betty Courtney, Joy Derhak, PP Pearl McDowell and Ruth Newton. A 50 year certificate was also presented to PP Rae Spear. Congratulations to all these ladies for so much years of dedication to KLA. Entertainment for the evening was by Jake Chenier.
Highlights of the April meeting included greetings from First Lady of Khartum, Georgette Holberg. Georgette surprised President Cathy with a donation of $170 from the Divan ladies.
PP Shirley James introduced Linda Onsowich who donated 2 teddy bears (thanks to Superstore) to KLA. These will be used for auctions at some of our upcoming fundraisers.
Following the meeting, Illustrious Sir Rick Holberg brought greetings from him and his Divan and then treated the ladies to a delicious lunch served by the Divan and Divan ladies. Many thanks to all!
A most enjoyable and uplifting evening was held on Saturday, March 15th at the KLA Sisters of The Holy Rock fundraiser. President Cathy introduced the Sisters and then the entertainment began! The performance was followed by a casual reception where everyone had the opportunity to chat and enjoy some delicious cookies and dainties!
Just a reminder of the “SISTERS OF THE HOLY ROCK” concert on Saturday, March 15th at Sturgeon Creek United Church, 207 Thompson Drive. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show is at 7:00 p.m. Our Past Presidents have kindly offered to serve baking, coffee and tea after the show. Please come to see this fabulous show, bring a friend and help support our cause....the kids! Tickets ($20.00) are available from Hope Rosenbaum or at the door.
See you there!
Many ladies braved the cold weather to attend our March meeting which was so very inspirational. We welcomed Illustrious Sir Rick Holberg and several members of his Divan. Illustrious Sir brought greetings on behalf of Khartum Shrine.
Past President Shirley James surprised President Cathy and all the ladies with a cheque in the amount of $130. Her granddaughter Laura and new husband Tyler decided to do something fun at their wedding --- instead just tinkling glasses for the bride & groom kiss fest, they asked everyone to make a donation to KLA. Many thanks to Laura & Tyler and Congratulations on your recent wedding.
Also at the March meeting, The Children's Rehab Foundation made a special presentation thanking KLA for the work they do and for the support they give. Several demonstrations were given of the various devices that assist some of the children at the hospital. We also got to meet Jersey - a very special young lady. Jersey, Child Ambassador for 2014, is 8 years old. She made a delightful speech thanking the ladies and then presented Cathy with a beautiful bouquet of flowers. Cathy then presented Jersey with some little gifts after which, Jersey's Mother got up and thanked the ladies again.
The afternoon culminated with coffee, tea, and delicious cupcakes courtesy of the Children's Rehab Foundation. They also presented each lady with a beautiful flower on the way out.
See everyone at April meeting.
More from Georgette --- here are a couple of table setting photos from the Kem Temple Brunch. Hopefully these photos will give our hostesses some creative ideas for decorating their respective tables.
A Note from Georgette Holberg, First Lady of Khartum
As First Lady of Khartum, I will be holding a brunch on Saturday, May 3rd. The monies raised from this brunch will go to our Canadian Shriners Hospital For Children in Montreal.
In October of last year Rick and I attended the Ladies of Kem Brunch. Kem Temple is in Grand Forks. I was so impressed with the idea that, with their permission, I decided to bring it north of the border. In order for it to be a success, I need your help and participation.
This is how it works:
I don’t need to know your theme just yet. I just need you to let me know that you would be interested in hostessing a table. My phone # is 204-668-4263 & email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Remember, I can not do this without you. I want to make this brunch a yearly event. Kem is now into their 5th year and had a total of 23 hosted tables.
Let’s have fun helping kids. Thank you.
First Lady of Khartum
