Dear Compassionate Friend:

A gentle reminder of two upcoming events that we hope you will be able to attend.

1. Balloon Release – Saturday, June 18th – Ronald McDonald House

Our annual Balloon Release in memory of our children who left us too soon will take place on Saturday June 18th at the CHEO campus. Registration opens at 1:30 pm and the ceremony will begin at 2:00 pm. The Canterbury Chamber Chorus will perform live music, and balloons, strings and notes, light refreshments, as well as free parking will be provided courtesy of CHEO. We also expect to have live butterflies for the children to release.

Note that for this year, the location has been moved to the Ronald McDonald House gardens, 407 Smyth Road. However, The Butterfly Garden (near the helipad) will still be open for visitors.

Please feel free to forward the attached poster or share this information with anyone that you feel would like to attend this special event.

2. Summer Social – Saturday, July 16th

Eileen and I will be hosting our annual pot-luck Summer Social on Saturday, July 16th from 4:30 pm. Everyone is welcome whether you have attended meetings or not. This social activity is a way to keep in touch with people you may have met through TCF or to introduce you to new friends. It is a true potluck, so please bring whatever you fancy, homemade or purchased – this is a no-stress event. Cutlery, plates, napkins, tea and coffee will be provided; drinks would be appreciated. More details nearer the date.

Best wishes,
