4A Wednesday, July 28, 2010 Feather River Bulletin h r Alicia Knadler Indian Valley Editor aknadler@plu Ben All Shrine members from all over Northern Cali- fornia converged in Su- sanville Sunday, July 19, to support the cause of burned, disfigured and crippled chil- dren. The men, their wives and families gathered to greet new Potentate Mike Rizo, his Lady Cathy and his contin- gent of officers, or Divan, from their headquarters in Sacramento. Susanville Masons hosted the event with a festive brunch attended by members of the Lassen and Feather River Shrine clubs, as well as others in the Ben Ali Shrine family. Each club donated hun- dreds of dollars toward the cause, including a fund for transporting children to the Sacramento hospital, where physicians specialize in burn treatments in addition to or- thopedic and spinal cord in- jury care: Shriner hospitals around the country are supported by the efforts of such club mem- bers, who ceaselessly orga- nize fund-raisers that com- bine family and fraternal fun with philanthropy. During the next year, Rizo's Lady Cathy will organize spe- cial fundraisers to help refur- bish the hospital lobby, used as the clinic waiting room. There is never a charge to the patient or parents for any medical care or services pro- vided at Shriner hospitals, which are open to all children without regard to race, reli- gion or relationship to a Shriner. Applications are available through Shrine members, at; or by caning (800) 237-5055. In an emergency situation, the treating physician may call the hospital chief of staff to arrange emergency medical care for a burned child. The number for the hospital in Sacramento is (916) 453-2111.
