C&W theme for Hospital Day

  • Mar. 19, 2012 6:00 p.m.

The 104th annual Hospital Day is only three months away and plans are already underway to ensure another successful event. Hospital Day is adopting a Country and Western theme this year and adding some Western events, so start digging into your closets for cowboy boots and hats. Donation request letters for the auction have been mailed out to past supporters. We are hoping to raise $25,000 to purchase a Stryker Infant Crib for Hospital Nursing, a Vascular Doppler for the medical clinic and a future purchase of a Sonosite Portable Ultrasound Unit. There was also a request from the visiting Psychiatrist for new furniture in the upstairs lounge in the clinic. The Hospital Day Committee partnered with Funk-It’s Dawn, Morgan and Julie to buy some beautiful long-lasting leather furniture for that space. So not only did the committee buy local, but Funk-It got an early chance to give us a great price to increase our purchasing power! There is plenty of opportunity to volunteer on the committee for monthly meetings or volunteer as a sub-committee member or even just for Hospital Day itself! Remember to mark your calendars for Saturday June 23 and call Ellen at 559-4301 with your ideas or donations or volunteer help! See you all there, pardners!”
