Bro. Sonny Clark from the St. Lawrence District Masonic Association spoke about the very successful curling bonspiel which was held on March 4, 2017 at the Brockville Country Club. RW. Bro. Sonny Clark presented $1,000.00 to the Shriners Hospitals for Children; accepting the donation is Illustrious Sir Peter Rippstein Hospital Representative and Brockville and District Shrine Club President Rob Smith.
Quote from Peter Rippstein: On behalf of the Board of Governors, patients & staff of Shriners Hospitals for Children – Canada I would like to express my sincere gratitude & appreciation for the generous donation of $1000.00 provided by RW. Bro. Sonny Clark of the St. Lawrence District Masonic Curling Bonspiel Committee. Our Shriners Hospital for Children health care system was initially founded on the Masonic principals of Brotherly Love, Truth & Relief and this donation is yet another example of how our Masonic Family continues to work together for the benefit of those in our communities. It should also be pointed out that every Shriner is a Freemason. We thank you for your continued support.
