(Right) Picture of Dolls and Shoeboxes Delivered to POPS

On Thursday, August 24, 2023, Lady Judy and Noble Jim Chaffin delivered 24 Dolls from the "Dolls from the Heart Club" and 18 Shoeboxes filled by the Al Kora Shrine Ladies with Toys for the Kids that go to the POPS (Pediatric Orthotic & Prosthetic Services) Department at Shriners Children's Florida. POPS was the last group to move out of the Hospital Building in Tampa. That building is now completely empty.

​The man in the center of the picture is Kevin Harrell. He is one of the Licensed Orthotists that does his magic at POPS. For you old-timers, the young lady on the Shriners Poster in Momo. She is a Shriner's Patient Ambassador and she visited us at several Shrine Club Meetings here in the Villages. She is an avid swimmer and is trying very hard to get into the Paralympics.

If you know of any of our Villages Shrine Club Nobles or their Ladies who are ill or have passed away please contact the Sunshine Committee  by e-mail at sunshine@thevillagesshrineclub.org and let them know so a card can be sent. They have a current roster of full names and addresses of all our Nobles and their Ladies, so it is only necessary to let them know if they are in a place other than their home, such as one of the local rehab centers, etc.  It is very important that our Nobles and their Ladies are aware that we are thinking of them during difficult times.
