Wishwalk for Children's Wish foundation
The Simcoe County Chapter of The Children’s Wish Foundation of Canada held their 6th Annual Wishmaker Walk in Orillia. This wonderful charitable event started at the Royal Canadian Legion on the Waterfront of Orillia at 1:30pm. The members of Harmony Lodge No. 296 Orillia notified the Grand Lodge Executive and the Action Committee about this event and the word went out. 7 members, wives and a member’s daughter took time out of their Sunday to help out this wonderful cause. On a rainy Sunday afternoon over 100 people stepped out on the waterfront trail to raise funds to grant wishes for critically ill children. Our team, a late entry in this event was granted a sponsors status and was the recipient of a wonderful plaque for their cash donation of $2,000.00. The team would like to thank those lodges who made their generous donations. RBP Temple 292, Belfast Purple Star No. 875, The Grand Lodge of Ontario West, and of course the members of the Orillia Lodge who donated the proceeds of the Orange Putt event held only the day before. The local Chapter of the children’s Wish foundation were both surprised and grateful for this generous donation on behalf of all the members of our association whether they have Orange hair or not. Well Done!
