Rimbey Ladies Hospital Auxiliary here to help out

The Rimbey Ladies Hospital Auxiliary is a busy group.

By Gladys Wilson

The Rimbey Ladies Hospital Auxiliary is a busy group.

The Auxiliary sells raffle tickets, which is a big source of income and has a bake sale at the Co-op annually.

The group also delivers boutonnieres’ and corsages to long term care patients on the day of their birthday, serve birthday cake and change the flowers in Area 2 to fit the season.  Bringing in dogs to cheer up patients in Long Term Care is another one of the ladies’ duties.

Auxiliary ladies also help out in the beauty salon by taking patients back and forth to their rooms.

Since its formation in 1986 the auxiliary has donated approximately $75,000 to the Hospital for patient comforts.   All the support from Rimbey and district residents is very much appreciated.

New members are always welcome. The group meets on the second Tuesday of every month except July and August at 1 p.m. at the Conference Room at the Rimbey Hospital and Care Center.
