Re: “Nelson family completes pilgrimage

Three Shriners from Creston were able to attend the end of the relay race at the Prestige to witness a spectacular donation from the government of BC to Shriners Care for Kids transportation in the name of Talia Goertz.

There were also two Shriners from Castlegar. It is always great for us to see firsthand the miracles that Shriners hospitals perform for the child and family.

As with other service clubs, we too are facing shortages in manpower to continue fundraising for such great causes, but something like this event does wonders for our hearts.

All the way back home we were brainstorming how we could do more than our regular ticket draws, selling popcorn, and banging drums in parades. It is this kind of exposure that we hope inspires more men to join us in this great work.
