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
Congratulations to the winners!!!
Congratulations to: Kathy Krokosh, Evelyn Davidson, Marcia Saunders and Susan Woodward on their 25 years of service to the Khartum Ladies Auxiliary. We appreciate your service and dedication to support disabled children in the Khartum Shrine jurisdiction. Best wishes to you all.
We had a wonderful afternoon with great food and many ladies and gentlemen who attended the Tea and hat show. Ill. Sir Allan Hadley showed up in his morning suit with top hat to add to the event. We were entertained with a summary of 100 years of hats to see how ladies fashion has changed over the century. Fancy sandwiches and scones with jam and clotted cream and delightful dainties helped make the afternoon. We had silent auction prizes and a 50/50 that made the select few happy. PP Kathy had a large display of jewelry that she had made for the ladies to purchase. Thank you to President Lynne, PP June, PP Joy and their committees who did a wonderful job of this event under trying circumstances of the Coronavirus looming. Here are some photos of the afternoon.

Don Thomson, Hospital Coordinator for Khartum Shrine and Board Member to Shriners Hospital Canada was able to present a cheque for $1000.00 to the Board at the Shriner's hospital on our behalf.
The cheque is the one we donate in honour of our members who have passed away during the year.
We enjoyed a lovely buffet lunch at the Viscount Gort with many ladies joining in the festivities by wearing a festive top. A brief meeting followed with a sing song and a delivery of Morden's Chocolates. Seasons Greetings to all!! Thank you to Valerie Webster for capturing the day.
On October 19, 2019, President Susan Woodward was pleased to present a cheque for $10, 000 to Potentate Doug McKechnie for the Shrine Hospital transportation fund on behalf of the Khartum Ladies Auxiliary.
