Hello Everyone

Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend before the hot humid weather arrives.


Our meeting on June 26th will be our last before we break for summer holidays. We will resume our monthly meetings on September 25th. 

We will be combining our regular meeting with the celebration of the March of Dimes’s Step Up For Stroke fundraiser.   The total donations that we collect are split, 70% to our chapter & 30% to MOD’s After Stroke Programs.  

I have acquired a special event parking permit for the north lot of the Lions Club.  There will be barriers set up so there will be lots of parking spots for everyone.


I have confirmation that 3 very special guests will be joining us .  Mayor Marianne Meed Ward,  MP North Oakville/Burlington Natalie Pierre and the Honourable MP Karina Gould. 

Anyone who wishes to donate online, here is the direct link to our team.  You can choose a Team Member or the Whole Team to donate to.

Automatic tax receipts will be issued to your email.  Cash & cheque donation will be collected at the meeting.  MOD will issue tax receipts for anything over $20. It may take 4-6 weeks to process these  donations. 

The online link will stay open until July 31St . Any cash or cheque donations after the 26th meeting can be mailed or brought in person to Debbie Butler    502-3055 Glencrest Rd, Burlington, ON, L7N 2H4  Cell:  (905) 599-8332  New St & Guelph Line area. 

Please call for a mutual time to get together.

Hello Everyone

Our next meeting is Wednesday May 22nd at 12 noon at the Lions Club. 

I'm very excited to have our most beloved Scottish executive Mima Pollock will be leading us in a Chair Yoga Exercise Class. It's so very important to try to gain back and maintain good muscles & joints that were diminished/lost after having a stroke.  As well as the caregivers who need to keep up their strength to be able to care for their loved ones.  Exercise is great for balance, flexibility, strength and positivity in mental health.  You might want to wear comfortable clothing as we are encouraging  everyone to participate in Mima's chair yoga class. 

Please let me know if Yes I Can Attend or No I can't make it this month so we can order the correct number of lunches for the meeting.

We are so sorry that the construction workers are taking up so many spots, we are trying our best to find a solution to this ongoing problem.

We could discuss finding members who live in the same neighborhoods that might be able to carpool together ? 

June is Stroke Month and March of Dimes Chapters have their big fundraiser Step Up for Stroke formerly Walk N Roll. 

I will be sending out a separate email on the Burlington chapter fundraiser. As we did last year, we will be combining our fundraiser with our usual meeting day on Wednesday June 26th. 

Hope you can make it on Wednesday May 22nd.

Please don't hesitate to contact me for any questions or concerns.

The next meeting is on Wednesday April 24th at 12 noon.  Get your thinking caps on as Kent Stirling will be challenging us with a fantastic game of Canadian trivia. 

Please let me know if you will be attending or not as we will be ordering lunches from Marilu’s.  

As of April 1st, March of Dimes has dropped the mandate of masks for all staff  & volunteers (Executives). We will still provide masks at the front table for those who wish to wear one. 

Hope to see you on the 24th.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
