Miriam Temple #2 in Victoria, British Columbia has been busy making masks, ice bags and hospital gowns for the Shriners Hospital for Children in Montreal. It’s been a fun way to work together and to contribute to the children. We’re social distancing as we do this.
The people in the photos are Queen Donna Tyrrell, Diane Scott, PQ Margaret Logan, PQ Sue Paugh and myself. The Zora Club, Miriam Temple #2, has sewn about 14 masks, with many more cut out and ready to be sewn, 10 ice bags and have many more cut out and 20 hospital gowns. We’re having fun working together for a good cause.

When it is Monday morning and you have to be at the hospital… the visit of Oasis Temple  with a candy bar brightens up your day! Thanks to the generosity of these wonderful ladies, children in the ambulatory care clinic had the opportunity to fill each finger of plastic gloves with some of their favorite candy. Children and parents on our inpatient unit also enjoyed this special treat and as a bonus, they were able to make magic wands with pretzels, sample some sparkly fairy bread and some surprise popcorn treats! It was fun and laughter all around and a great way to chase away the rainy Monday blues!
