December Newsletter


Well, the band is at rest for the holiday season. Our Christmas Party at the Shrine Club is on Sunday Dec 9 th at 2PM. It is open to all Shriners and Ladies. Reservations are required, please contact me or Keith. Emily just had another surgery on her back, #31 she is doing “GREAT.” The guests this year will be the Mellish family. The band looks forward to this little get together. The new EOS unit that was installed this year at Shriners Hospital is doing ”Fantastic.” With this unit the fear for children is gone. Their parents can watch while the child get the x-ray with a low dose of radiation. Scoliosis is another big issue that Dr. Ward has discussed at Shriners Hospital Board meetings. The procedures for scoliosis surgery include different robotic instruments. They are done at UPMC Childrens Hospital in Pittsburgh. There was a local patient that had a major curve that was corrected at Shriner Hospital Philadelphia. This patient is back to a normal and fun life.


Shriners again have a sled hockey team. They were out on the ice at the hockey promotion for ShrinersedHospital. I would like to thank Tim Barnhart for all his efforts. I was unable to attend this event but it was very successful for Shriners Hospital. Thank You!


In closing the band would like to wish everyone a safe Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
