This year’s Orchard Hospital Ice Cream Social will be held on the front lawn at the hospital on Thursday, May 11 from 6 to 7:30 in the evening.  A wide variety of cakes, pies and cobblers will be available as well as many delicious flavors of ice cream. Sugar free refreshments will be available for those who prefer them. Members of the hospital auxiliary are providing the home made baked goods. This is a wonderful chance to get together with friends and neighbors and a worthwhile opportunity to contribute to one of the auxiliary’s main fundraisers of the year. All proceeds will go toward improvements to our local hospital. Tickets are $3 and will be available that evening or can be purchased from members of the Auxiliary in advance.

Tickets for the drawing for the Auxiliary’s Spring Basket can be purchased that evening, or are available at the Gift Shop in the hospital lobby. Tickets are $1 apiece or six for $5. The Basket is filled with a wide assortment of spring-themed articles, many of them home made by members of the Auxiliary. Drawing for the winning ticket will be held at the end of the evening.
