In 1993 Princess Pine began providing a $500 bursary to help a local student to further her or his education.

At Christmas time a package is sent to the Cancer Clinic at Children’s Hospital in Vancouver with gifts for children of all ages, along with homemade quilts, socks, baby hats etc.

Local donations are also collected for the Kelowna Cancer Care Program.

This is a free service giving cancer patients rides to their appointments.

More information on this program is available by contacting Bill Crook at 250-296-4282.

The public is invited to attend the open installation of the new slate of officers of the Princess Pine chapter on Saturday, March 19 at 1:30 p.m. at the Masonic Hall on Oliver Street above Walk-Rite-Shoes.

This fraternal organization has a long-standing tradition of fellowship and charity and new members are most welcome, Crook says.
