Hospital Auxiliary Thanks Volunteers


Posted on May 15, 2013
Elaine Howard, President of the Hospital Auxiliary organization welcomed everyone to the annual Auxiliary Luncheon and opened the gathering with a word of prayer. A tasty lunch was then catered by Venice Monroe and the hospital dietary staff.

President Howard then introduced the program for the lunch. Jerry Crawford and Liza Kelley of Earl May Lawn and Garden Center of Shenandoah shared new plant and landscaping ideas. Kelley demonstrated the versatility and impact of using colored pots that can be changed on a seasonal basis. Crawford shared information about new colorful trees and shrubs and then fielded many questions about drought and disease.

Members had the opportunity to view the completed renovations to the Family Room and the Beauty Shop that the Auxiliary had assisted with. President Howard thanked the members for all of the many things that they assist with annually. These are Tree of Lights, Cookie Walk, Gift Shop, Scholarships for High School seniors who are going into a Healthcare profession, tray favors, as volunteers for the Kornerstone Kids events of Tour of Homes and Last Man Standing, and as volunteers for the Hospital events such as Ladies Night Out, Halloween Parade, Golf Tournament and Children's Health Fair.

Mike O'Neal, Hospital CEO reiterated the hospital's thanks and appreciation to Auxiliary members for their service to the hospital. He gave an update on other hospital renovations and plans to move selected services to the Daycare building.
