It reads, “Heart & Soul, 3 Hearts, The original Dr. Helmcken Memorial Hospital was built in September, 1972 and taken down in October, 2016. The Hospital Auxiliary was formed in 1970. This beautiful three-heart design was created with copper wire salvaged from the old hospital. Donated by On Call Service Centre Ltd.”
