The Treasure Box Paint-In after the April 2008 meeting was the promised social event of the season. More than 20 members stayed to paint shoe boxes, enjoy the wine and cheese, and socialize with other members. Everyone seemed to have a great afternoon. In addition to those boxes that are now well under way, June happily carried home 6 boxes that members had completed at home.

Probably happiest of all are the children at the Shriners Hospital who are receiving these boxes. They are in hospital for long periods of time, and the treasure boxes they receive are welcome little containers made especially for them in which they can store their little treasures. There are 40 beds at the Montreal Shriners Hospital, which specializes in orthopaedic surgery, so it is no small task keeping up with the need for additional boxes for the patients who range from 1 to 17 years. The boxes that left with June plus the ones that many of us have started at this paint-in will put smiles on many faces in the near future.
















Any MADP members can join in.  Please let June know if you are interested.  Her phone number and e-mail address are on our membership list.
