Join members of Prince Albert Kinistino Lodge #1 on Saturday November 4th, 2017 for a fundraising dinner in support of the memory box program.

Members from the Kinistino Masonic Lodge #1 in Prince Albert are bringing a tool of compassion to the obstetrics and pediatric units of the Victoria Regional Hospital. Since 1997 members of the Freemasons in Saskatchewan have been building commemorative boxes for grieving parents who are coping with the loss of a baby or child. The memory box program has been assisting families in their grieving process since 1997 at Royal University Hospital and just recently Battlefords hospital. The boxes are an expression of love and concern for the families and it’s purpose is to hold mementos of the baby or child such as a lock of hair, bracelets, photos, booties and ID cards.
The boxes are handcrafted by the members of the Freemasonry group and funded through an annual fundraising dinner the group organizes each year. It’s first dinner will be held for the Victoria Hospital on Saturday, November 4 at 5 pm. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased at the Victoria Hospital Foundation, Absolute Security or Harold’s Family Foods.
