Lions support Masset Hospital

  • Sep. 24, 2007 4:00 p.m.

Submitted by Kim Mushynsky-In the fall of 2006, Masset nurse Dawn Edwards began looking into purchasing a new ECG machine for the Masset Hospital.Dawn approached Masset/Haida Lions member Mary Isaacs to see if this was a possible funding source and was told to prepare a proposal for them to review. The rest, as they say, is history. The Lions approved the funding proposal and included the ECG as a part of their annual telethon in November 2006. The $8,000 ECG machine was ordered early in 2007 and arrived at the Masset Hospital in June.The Masset Hospital would like to acknowledge this generous donation by the Masset/Haida Lions and thank all the residents of Masset and Old Massett who support the Lions each year with their telethon. It is this type of community spirit which makes the islands such a wonderful place to live.
