HUGE SUCCESS!!!!! Shriners Hospital for Children Screening Clinic
You should be VERY proud that today's Shriners Hospital for Children Screening Clinic-Los Angeles was a HUGE success!!! Encino Shrine Club was a part of the following history making team that made it happen along with :
North Valley Shrine Club and Woodland Hills Shrine Club,Old West Lodge, Panamericana Lodge and San Fernando Lodge also a couple of unit Clowns.
The brotherhood and camaraderie was the pinnacle of the Shrine in my view.
We had 28 children that were screened and 7 that will be helped by the Shriners Hospital for Children-Los Angeles. We had children from as far a Ontario and Fontana that traveled to be seen today.
Clowns with balloon's, hot dogs, chips, soda, popcorn, and candy helped to keep the atmosphere very friendly. Child ID was also in process and it was well received. I even saw one parent take home a petition for Blue Lodge. This scene was almost unbelievable, and better than any vision that any of us had for this day.
The next clinic is already booked for May 8, 2010 at the same location, and we will find ways to bring in even more kids.
As I have been saying lately, "Remember why you became a Shriner!"
