The Orchard Hospital Auxiliary covered many topics during their annual Spring Luncheon Tuesday with a delicious ham dinner prepared by the Hospital Dietary Department.

Reports were given for each committee, following by discussion on donations for the Spring Raffle which will be raffled off at the Ice Cream Social May 4.

Volunteer Recognition Pins were given by Joyce Spence and Hospital CEO Steve Stark gave an update on hospital activities.

Installation of new officers was completed by Auxiliary Liaison Kirsten Storne-Piazza followed by lunch.

Following lunch, a donation of $3,000 was presented to Stark for Hovlid Skilled Nursing Center for the purchase of a special $2,500 wheelchair for the residents to use and $500 for activities for the Hovlid Center.

When the Auxiliary is supported at their gift shop, their ice cream social and bake sales, it means Orchard Hospital is supported by their generosity and is very much appreciated.
