On 26 July 2017, the Cowichan Valley Shrine Club presented Certificates of Appreciation to Cowichan Collision, 5194 Mearns Road, and Mark’s Instant Sign Shop, 750 Jubilee Street, two local businesses which provided their services, free of charge, for the Cowichan Valley Shrine Club‘s antique fire truck, which is used in Gizeh Shrine fund raising for Shriners Hospital For Children.
The Cowichan Valley Shrine Club released this statement:
“Our President Pat Fyffe, Brian Nicol, Tom Mitchell and Monte Engelson presented Shrine Certificate of Appreciations and and a photograph of our Fire Truck to Ron Mellson of Cowichan Collision and the owners of Mark’s Instant Sign Shop for all the work they did on our Fire Truck…..Cowichan Collision painted our truck this spring at no charge and Mark’s Instant Sign Shop donated the decals for the truck. We really appreciate our community donations.
Mark’s Instant Sign Shop has also done work for Temple Lodge No. 33 in the past.
Mark’s Instant Sign Shop made the two commemorative signs which are displayed at the Canada Avenue entrance of the Duncan Masonic Temple: one sign honouring the four Brothers of Temple Lodge No. 33 who died in Canada’s military services in the First World War (this sign was unveiled on 11 November 2013) and one sign commemorating the Brethren of Temple Lodge No. 33 who served in Canada’s military services during the First World War (this sign was unveiled on 11 November 2014)
