/R E P E A T -- Media Invitation - Good news story! - 90th Anniversary Celebrations of Shriners Hospitals for Children®- Canada/

MONTREAL, Feb. 16, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ -


In celebration of Shriners Hospitals for Children- Canada's 90th anniversary, hospital leadership and special guests will host a skating party on one-ok-a-kind rink on the current hospital grounds. The skating rink was a tradition at the hospital in the 1960s and 1970s, until renovation work in the 1980s.

This is a historic year for the hospital as construction and planning continue before the move to the new location on the Glen site in the fall of 2015.

There will be short speeches to commemorate the hospital's achievements in 90 years, a celebratory cheer which will be followed by the opening of the ice rink.


Thursday, February 19, at 11 a.m.


1529 Cedar Avenue, Montreal H3G 1A6


Photo opportunity at 11:15 a.m.: opportunity for reporters to lace up their skates and interact with patients, their families and staff members.
