Auxiliary member honored for service

McKeown was one of the founding members who, back in 1970, started the auxiliary in Clearwater

BC Association of Hospital Auxiliaries area representative Beth Jackson (l) presents Gertie McKeown with flowers and a certificate in honour of her lifetime auxiliary membership during a recent ceremony.

On Thursday, Sept. 8, 30 members of Clearwater and Vavenby  Hospital Auxiliary gathered at Lacarya golf course for a lunch to honor Gertie McKeown on receiving her lifetime membership.

McKeown was one of the founding members when a group of ladies, back in 1970, started the auxiliary in Clearwater so it would be ready for when the original hospital was built.

Since then she has served in multiple positions within the auxiliary besides helping with the baby clinics and flu clinics. She was always there to lend a hand over the years.

 

McKeown has been in the auxiliary for 46 years. Now that is dedication! She certainly earned her life membership! Thank you Gertie for all your years of volunteering! We appreciate it!
