On Saturday, June 23 2018, the 3rd Annual Albion Falls Block Party was held to raise funds for the Dr. Bob Kemp Hospice.

Among the many companies, food trucks and entertainers participating was a tent for The Pool Shoppe, complete with beach balls and colouring books for the children to enjoy. It was a beautiful afternoon organized by
Bill Yates, and many people came out to support the great cause.

The Dr. Bob Kemp Hospice is a place that provides individuals and families who are living with life-threatening illnesses a place of excellent care. As the website states, Hospice is about celebrating life and quality of living. To support the hospice, the Pool Shoppe donated a Shadow Foosball Table for a grand prize giveaway.

Our Retail Sales Manager, Alex Gregory, was able to congratulate the winner, Paul, as he accepted his prize. In a shocking turn of events, Paul decided to gift the Shadow Foosball Table back to the Dr. Bob Kemp Hospice. Paul drives to the Hospice every Sunday to volunteer in the kitchen and felt that his prize should have a home there. As Alex Gregory put it, “What a great guy!

The rest of the afternoon was spent being entertained by Bruiser from the Hamilton Bull Dogs and listening to music from Ronnie and the Rockets. There were children running around with painted faces, delicious food being devoured from the food trucks and many customers that came to our tent with a smile on their face. The 3rd Annual Albion Falls Block Party was a huge success for the Dr. Bob Kemp Hospice and an event we were proud to be a part of.
