There's only a short time left to let us know if you will be attending our Annual • Lung Transplant Picnic and BBQ which will be held this coming Sunday, June 26, 2005 at 12 noon in Huron Park, Mississauga, ON.
Location: 830 Paisley Blvd. W (between Queensway and Dundas St. W. west of Mavis)
If you are planning to attend we would like to know as soon as possible to give us an idea of how big a crowd to expect and to make sure we have enough food on hand. We would also like the names of those in your party so we can have the name badges prepared. Of course, we understand that some people are not able to decide until the last minute for health or other reasons and last minute guests will still be welcome.
Respond by email to Merv Sheppard or call me at 519-632-7940.
The BBQ is a great opportunity to socialize with others in the transplant community and is open to pre and post-lung transplant recipients, their supports, friends, families, the transplant team, hospital staff and related parties. See photos from last year at: Picnic 2004
Bring your own lawn chairs, coolers, beverages and a pot-luck accompaniment such as a salad, desert, rolls, snacks or whatever else you prefer. We will provide hamburgers, hot dogs, sausages, condiments, plates, cups, cutlery, napkins, etc.
A donation will be collected to help defray expenses.
For planning purposes please let us know how many each of hot dogs, sausages and hamburgers your party will require. Vegetarian? If you prefer a vegetarian burger, hot dog, etc. please bring your own and we will BBQ it for you.
If you are on oxygen please make sure you have an adequate supply.
As noted above please respond as soon as possible. Also, let us know the names of the individuals in your party for name badge purposes. Include the name of your organization if you are representing one. If you are a pre or post-transplant recipient please let us know this and the date and type of your transplant (double-lung, single-lung or heart & lung) for the name badge. Thank you.
