During this yearâ€™s Jaffa Shrine Circus in April, a special young lady attended our Saturday evening show. She arrived carrying a very large bag of aluminum can â€śtabsâ€ť weighing over 25 pounds! This special young lady is Abby Gemmell, daughter of Robert and Cindy Gemmell of Punxsutawney, PA. Robert, being a third generation Shriner, was Abbyâ€™s source of information about our TAB program to help support our Hospitals. Abby turned in 2-1 gallon plastic bags of tabs at last yearâ€™s circus.
Abby is a student at the Punxsutawney Middle School. Abby and her friends collected a lot of cans during the year. It takes over 750 aluminum can tabs to make a pound and she had over 25 pounds of tabs. The children in the Shriners Hospitals appreciate your achievement. Jaffa Shrine thanks you and your friends and your participation in our â€śTABâ€ť program supporting our 22 Shriners Hospitals.
If you would like more information on the Shriners Hospital TAB program, please contact the Jaffa Shrine at 814-944-4043.
