Our Summer Children Have Arrived!

After a long journey and late night our summer children in the “Relief from Radiation” program have finally arrived.  It was really fun seeing all of their faces as they arrived to find most of the host families waiting for them in the airport.

They were pretty tired but we managed to pull them together for a quick group shot before sending them home with their families for a good nights sleep.  So begins their 5 weeks of radiation free fresh air, fruits, vegetables and loving family environment.  Not to mention some fun along the way!  If you see them around the area, please say hello and extend a warm welcome.

3rd Annual Motorcycle Poker Run

It is almost time for CAC’s 3rd Annual Motorcycle Poker Run and BBQ!  Mark Saturday July 5th on your calendar for a day of fun and fund raising.

3rd_Poker_RunRegistration/Refreshments: 8:30 – 9:00 AM Brockville Honda – 1800 Hwy 2, Brockville
Route: Brockville – Rockport – Gananoque– Front of Yonge – Brockville (approx. 120 km)
Finish Line: BBQ, prizes: 1600 California Avenue, Brockville
Contact info: Jon Schuler – 613.404.7639 – jon_schuler@hotmail.com

Again this year we will be holding a picnic at the finish line so everyone can come and enjoy the event. We will be having a BBQ and all of the proceeds will go towards assisting with the cost of bringing the children over for this summers respite. It would be wonderful if we had a large turnout at the picnic, we could show the motorcycle riders how much pride we have in our organization as they arrive at the finish line and enjoy the BBQ themselves!! The BBQ will begin at 11:30 AM and will be located at the old Recorder and Times facility on 1600 California Avenue in Brockville.  Annis Moreau will be organizing the BBQ portion of the event so she would appreciate an RSVP to amore018@myhighspeed.ca in order to plan the food quantities.

Together, lets make this a huge success!!!
