Lyme Mobile on Earth Day!

What a wonderful day we had! Busy, and I've used up all my spoons, especially with the busy week and yesterday's early morning women's breakfast as well, but worth it!

A production of "The Lorax" was shared by a group of people, with actors playing the parts.

More pictures are in the link below.

The most exciting event is the Lyme Mobile, made available to us thanks to our main sponsor for the Lyme Awareness Day, Colony Ford Lincoln Brampton. We managed to get four members of the committee together for a picture session. More pictures are HERE.

The car won't be missed anywhere it goes! We hope people will download the registration forms and either register themselves to walk, or donate something, or sponsor us, or make others aware of the day we're planning. The ticks are already active and everyone needs to know about Lyme disease, the early symptoms and the effects of untreated bites. Not every tick is infected and not every bite will lead to Lyme disease.

Our Lyme walk website has the registration forms, and contains more links:

Isn't it wild??

The car will be seen at the Brampton Home Show on May 5.

Lyme Walk times:
We hope most people will pre-register and sign their waivers before the time, so that they have time to gather sponsors or pledges to support their walk. Remember, there is a prize for the person collecting the most funds and handing it in on the day! Every dollar helps CanLyme. Registration forms explain the fees for individuals, families or younger people. T-shirts can be ordered if people want them. Pay by cheque or request an invoice via Paypal.

Registration and checking in will start from 9:30 am;
Silent Auction should be open for bidding from 10:00 am or earlier;
The walk will start around 11:00 (smooth, easy walk!);
Prize giving to be around noon.
Afterwards and in between there will be games for kids, face painting, bidding, time to talk to Lymies and their caregivers, answer questions, talk to the vet, and enjoy the picnic you bring along. We are not able to sell food.
