The executive members of the Rimbey Ladies Auxiliary gave a $6,000 cheque to the Rimbey Hospital on March 13. The money will be used to purchase new leather recliners for the hospital. The leather recliners were on what the Auxiliary members call a “wish list.” The hospital provides a list of items they would like to see in the hospital which would give the place a more homey feel. These items are not covered by the Government of Alberta, and are bought through donations, such as this one. The ladies auxiliary fundraised for the chairs through various means, such as selling raffle tickets for quilt made by one of the auxiliary members - which are still being sold, bake sales, a barbecue at, and sponsored by, the Co-op, the group’s Strawberry Tea - which is scheduled for May - and proceeds from the small tuck shop in the hospital.
