Moose Lodge In Lindsay Donates $5,000 To Support New CT Scanner

KAWARTHA LAKES-For 93 years, members of The Moose Lodge in Lindsay have been committed to caring for the young and old, bringing communities closer together and celebrating life. Having made the difficult decision to dissolve the Lindsay Lodge due to the challenges posed by the pandemic and decreasing membership, members are living their mission with a final gesture of generosity.

Among the community causes to receive a gift from The Moose Lodge is the Ross Memorial Hospital Foundation.

On October 6, The Moose Lodge members Kelly Parker, Gary Guthrie and William Campbell visited the Ross to present a donation of $5,000 to support the community’s new CT Scanner.

“Patients in our community have always counted on the care they receive at the Ross. And the hospital has always counted on the support of community partners like The Moose to help fund needed equipment,” said Kelly Parker.  “We know that helping the hospital helps the community. And the new CT Scanner will help the Ross Team diagnose and treat patients of all ages. Our members are proud to be a part of this community effort.”

“We’re so grateful for the exceptional support of The Moose Lodge over the years and we’re honoured to be counted among the charities receiving the Lodge’s milestone gifts as it winds down its volunteer work,” said Erin Coons. “While this feels like the end of an era, we hope all Moose members are comforted knowing that the impact of their giving will carry on for years to come.”

CT imaging is a critical tool for diagnosing injuries and disease, and for guiding surgeries and cancer treatments. The CT Scanner at the Ross is needed 24/7/365. As a result of constant use, CT Scanners have a useful life of ten years.
