Event raises funds to support Dr. Helmcken Memorial Hospital

Participants in the Dr. Helmcken Memorial Hospital Auxiliary’s Garden Party held Sunday afternoon at Blackpool Hall model their “fascinators” – a small hat worn on the side of the head.

Pictured are (back, l-r) Penny Christenson, Joan Slingsby, Marilyn Collison, Brenda Foulkes, Eleanor Lutz, Sue Ludtke, (front, l-r) Marg Anderson, Karen Straub, Gail Capostinsky, and Linda Simms.

Organizers report that the garden party turned out well, with lots of good food catered by the Wells Gray Inn, generous donations toward the auctions and the bidding was brisk, thanks to a wonderful crowd.
