Urgent, members needed

Dear Editor,
The Hanna Ladies Hospital Auxiliary is in dire need of new younger, committed members in order to keep this non-profit organization going.
All proceeds from our semi-annual rummage sale fundraisers are used 100 per cent to improve patient comfort and care, purchase necessary medical equipment for both the Hanna Hospital and Hanna Nursing Home, as well as provide bursaries to those selected students who are entering college or university in a medical field.
In the past three years we have spent approximately $160,000 on the purchase of Primary Care Foot equipment, IV Pumps, Blood Analyzer Machine, Portable Ultra Sound Machine, O2 Concentrators, Accuvein Machine, blinds throughout buildings, microwave and fridge for Palliative Care, seven TVs, quilts, seasonal tablecloths, etc..
We have also given out $26,000 in bursaries in the past three years.
Without new younger active members age 18 years and older, we cannot continue this organization that has been ongoing for about 75 years in Hanna.
Due to our current membership aging and increasing volume at the rummage sales we need new members.
Calling on all ladies who will provide a current police clearance report (free of charge), attend majority of eight yearly meetings, held the second Wednesday of the months of March to June and September to December.
In time, consider a position on our executive committee. Meetings average about one hour and are held at the Hanna Hospital.
While we appreciate all our volunteers, we still need new members.
Our hospital, nursing home and medical team need us and you.
For more information please contact Gloria Hutton, president at 403-854-2417, Leona Hanlon Bond  Treasurer 403-854-3757, Deb James 403-854-3180, or MaryAnn Campion, past president, 403-854-3388.
Debbie James
Hanna, Ab.
