Mission of Mercy: Touching Lives through Smiles!
I had the privilege to be a part of Minnesota Mission of Mercy (MOM) this weekend, a program focused on helping underserved populations of children and adults receive dental treatment that they, for whatever reason, cannot obtain. I was a part of a group of 1,000 volunteers including dentists, dental assistants ,hygienists , dental lab technicians and dental students who came together to provide free dental care to residents on July 22nd and 23rd at a clinic at Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota.
The auditorium of the college was converted into a 100 chair dental clinic that not only provided basic dentistry like cleanings and fillings but also specialized care like pediatric dentistry, oral surgery, root canals and partial dentures to people who might otherwise never see a dentist. It was an emotional day watching people in tears of gratitude to finally have teeth they always needed and to have their families’ dental needs finally taken care of.
About 2000 patients were seen over the 2 days. The very first Mission of Mercy (MOM) was launched in Virginia in 2000 and since inception, MOM events have helped over 200,000 patients and provided over $123 million in free dental services.
The memories of this event will always stay with me as I continue my work in our community with renewed energy to touch lives through smiles.

With 3,000 torchbearers participating, the Pan Am torch relay is a 41-day journey that started on May 2015 with a traditional lighting ceremony at the Pyramid of the Sun in Teotihuacan, Mexico. The Canadian journey for the flame started with its arrival in Toronto on May 30, 2015. The flame will travel to the five other Canadian cities – Calgary, Winnipeg, Montreal, Halifax and the Greater Vancouver Area – and more than 130 Ontario communities, including the Town of Caledon, towards the lighting of the cauldron on July 10, 2015, during the Opening Ceremony in downtown Toronto.
This proved to be a wonderful celebration where a lot of effort was put in to get the community together and bring in the spirit of the games.
The Town of Caledon Parks and Recreation planned a number of activities like arts and crafts and face painting which always proves to be the point of attraction for all children.
Local area athlete and Torch Bearer Heather Whittier who is a skilled athlete were chosen by the community for her commitment to volunteering and for her work with senior’s organizations and hospices in the community. She also holds a world record in the sport of Archery.
As mayor Allan Thompson said “Caledon is the place to be on June 13 when the torch relay runs through our communities and makes its final stop at the Caledon Day celebration!” It surely was the place to be! Congratulations to Lorraine Bayliss and to all the volunteers who made this event possible.
