The Ladies of St. Anne of Immaculée Conception & St. Philippe Parish in Pain Court made their 4rd annual presentation to Chatham Goodfellows.
“The Ladies of St. Anne of Immaculée Conception & St. Philippe Parish in Pain Court held another very successful Christmas Toy Drive. Lucille Lucier of the Ladies of St. Anne of Immaculée Conception & St. Philippe Parish in Pain Court reminisced how the Ladies became involved with Chatham Goodfellows. Over 4 years ago Lucille met President Tim at the Chatham -Kent Health Alliance while visiting loved ones in the Hospital. President Tim shared the history of Chatham Goodfellows and their motto “No Child Without a Christmas”. The chance meeting between Lucille and Tim has resulted in a strong bond between The Ladies of St. Anne of Immaculée Conception & St. Philippe Parish in Pain Court and Chatham Goodfellows. Chatham Goodfellows appreciate the overwhelming generosity to “Ensure No Child Without a Christmas”.
Over its 65-year history the Chatham Goodfellows have provided Christmas to the less fortunate for citizens in Chatham and the former townships of Chatham, Dover, Harwich and they partner with the Merlin Legion/Kinsmen to provide for those in need in Merlin, Dealtown, North Buxton and the former Township of Raleigh”.
