The Massena Shrine Club’s “Ups and Downs” Parade Unit and their Ladies traveled to the Montreal Shriner’s Hospital for Children on Sept. 14 to present Montreal Shriner’s Hospital for Children Chairman of the Board of Governors Dr. Robert Drummond with a check for $10,000.

The money was raised by the “Ups and Downs” Parade Unit by participating in parades throughout the summer, through can pull tabs saved by elementary schools, by being the beneficiary of the NYS Correction Officer’s Union Donations, and also through donations provided by the Massena Motor Cycle Club and the Ogdensburg Motor Cycle Clubs.

This donation was earmarked for research to benefit the children.
