Editor, The Times:
The Dr. Helmcken Hospital Auxiliary members are getting ready to host their sixth annual Garden Party on May 3 at Wells Gray Inn. Doors will be open at 1 p.m.
Tickets for this event are only $25 and are selling fast. This event will include an array of fabulous food for all who attend, plus you will see lots of different garden items.
This year’s theme is “Miniature Gardens” and we are again honored to have Mr. Gordon Murison from Hinton, Alberta to be our auctioneer for the day. You will know from past years that Mr. Murison keeps us laughing at his comical remarks!
We will again have the “Parade of Hats” and encourage all the ladies to spruce up their attire with an “out of this world” hat on their head, meaning – there is no limit to style!
The Auxiliary will hold its AGM (annual general meeting) this coming May 7 in the hospital’s board room. Election of officers will be voted on at this meeting.
We will be presented with a “wish list” from the hospital for the AGM. This list can include new or needed equipment. The Auxiliary will then vote on where the funds will be allocated to. We encourage all our members to attend.
May 10 will be Auxiliary Day in the province of B.C. This is a day we like to express our thanks to the community in helping us achieve our goals in raising monies for our health care facility.
This year is the 45 anniversary of auxiliaries in British Columbia. Please help us celebrate by dropping by our booth at the Buy-Low store on Monday, May 11 for some anniversary cake from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. We hope to see you all there!
