Rimbey Hospital Auxiliary News

By Mary Burrows

Our first fall meeting was held in the conference room of the new addition to the hospital with 12 members present.

There was a busy agenda making plans for our fall activities. On Thursday, Oct. 6, we will be hosting a social hour in the hospital from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. for the patients. There will also be entertainment and refreshments.

On Friday, Oct. 30, we will be having a tea in the Legion Hall from 2 to 4 p.m. and will be serving pie and ice cream. There will also be a bake sale.

Our auxiliary members have been asked to help with the fall flu clinics, which will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 27 from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., and on Thursday, Nov. 24 from 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Community Centre.

The flower program is being enjoyed by the patients who are confined to the hospital. They receive a corsage or boutonniere on their birthday.

Our next regular meeting, which will also be our annual meeting, will be in the new conference room at the hospital beginning at 1 p.m.

We invite all interested ladies to come and take part in our ongoing projects, which help with patient comforts.
