Ladies Auxiliary donates to hospital

A donation of $1

By MARY BURROWS

At the December meeting, members donated gifts to be given to people who are in hospital during Christmas. A donation of $1,000 was made for the purchase of two special thermometers to be used in the maternity ward. These funds were presented to Colleen Connelly, site chairman of the hospital, by Sheila Forsen, treasurer of the Ladies Auxiliary of the Rimbey Hospital and Care Centre.

Every month flowers (corsages, boutonnieres) are given to long term patients on their birthdays.

A lovely quilt was donated to the ladies auxiliary for their annual raffle to be held in the new year.

The next meeting is Jan. 11 at 1 p.m. in the hospital conference room.
