Another year is just about past
Or is it another year gone, at last
We’ve seen the sorrow and we’ve seen the pain
We’ve seen the drought, then finally rain.
We’ve lost many dear ones
Through these hard days
Sometimes it was just like
Walking in a haze.
But then hip, hip, horray bowling started again
It’s time to see my old bowling friends
That first week I laughed so much I was sore
And boy oh boy I just wanted more.
I’ve had great fun these last few months
Playing with my buddy bunch
But really, lets be honest I do have a hunch
It’s always been about the lunch
So now Christmas season is almost here
A time for laughter, for fun and for cheer
Enjoy the times this festive season brings
Along with hugs and other things
For in my mind I have no doubt
That 2022 will be better through out
And with this same hunch
I know it won’t be long
I’ll be back to playing
With my great bowling bunch

President Susan Woodward presented two cheques to Christine Schollenberg, Executive Director of the Children's Rehabilitation. One amount was from a monetary gift from the late P.P. Rae Spears for cerebral palsy patient Ryder Smith, 11yrs old, to purchase a bike. This will allow him to be more mobile, improve physically and socially and help him to participate with his family. Also a cheque for $2000.00 from the Khartum Ladies Auxiliary to assist with the Repair Department so that they can keep repairing and loaning out equipment.
Khartum Ladies Auxiliary make tote bags for our new patients that are sent to a Shrine Hospital. The bags are decorated (these bags done by Carolyn Kristjanson) and items appropriate to the child's age are added to the bag for entertainment. We are very proud to do this for the patients and hope they find the bags enjoyable too.
Thank you all the Ladies in the Auxiliary for their efforts in selling the raffle tickets this challenging year. The winners are:
First Prize - $500.00 Hope Rosenbaum
Second Prize - $250.00 WOW gift certificate - Bonnie Davies
Third Prize - $100.00 gift certificate - M. Lavallee
