Carson Valley Shrine Club chooses new leaders

Staff reports

The Carson Valley Shrine Club elected officers for the year 2001. They are President Paul Lockwood, Vice President Jozef Meulenberg and Secretary/Treasurer Bill Vining.

The Carson Valley Shrine Club has members from all around the Carson Valley, as well as places as far away as Reno and Fallon.

“Shriners, as well as others who know of the Shrine Hospitals’ fine medical services for children, support the Shrine Hospitals,” said Past President Bob Anderson.

The hospitals services are for orthopedic, spinal and burn victims aged up to 18 without cost.

“The Sacramento Shrine Hospital is the closest to our area and transportation can be provided for the patient and a parent or guardian,” Anderson said.

Shrine members are also members of the Masonic Lodge. They not only support the Shrine hospitals, but also help local children attend the Shrine Circus each year in March.
