Last night Jim Wilson, president of the Canadian Lyme Disease Foundation, sent email to say that he will join us on the bus to Niagara Falls as well as at the Awareness Day on May 18! He is flying in from BC.

This is exciting news for Lymies who are planning to attend the awareness events in Brampton or Niagara Falls. Both these men have given so much of their time, their expertise and themselves to help others along the way. It would be an honour to have them here and I hope they remember to pack their smiles!

Items have started arriving from my friends far and wide across the world to be used for Silent Auction items or for prizes. One beautiful item from England is a handmade glass pendant, using rainbow fused glass and with elephants etched inside. Another is a lovely watercolour painting, sent from South Africa. Someone else donated a gift certificate for craft items, especially quilling to be ordered online. There are T-shirts and more being promised and ideas being discussed about what to send. I'm so grateful to everyone, in every way, helping to make this day a success.

The LymeWalk website has been updated and the REGISTRATION FORMS are ready for those who want to download. As soon as you are registered, by completing the forms and sending them back, we can send the fundraising package which includes everything needed to talk to your contacts.
