The Orchard Hospital Auxiliary would like to thank many people for their help in putting on the recent successful Ice Cream Social on the front lawn at the hospital. Mac’s Hardware and Rental supplied the large tent. The Gridley School District furnished the tables and chairs.  The Butte County Sheriff’s department helped in many ways.  The Hospital Dietary department supplied the ice cream and helped set up. Members of the Hospital Foundation and the Hospital Administration scooped and served the ice cream. The hospital maintenance staff set up the area and did the clean up, as well as lots of general help. Members of the Auxiliary baked and supplied the many cakes, pies and other baked goods.

Without the help of all of you the annual event could not have had its success. Thank you! Most of all we would like to thank the many members of the community who came out that evening to join friends and families for an old-fashioned community get-together. It is a traditional occasion and the Auxiliary’s most successful way to economically support our much-loved and necessary local hospital. Thank you all!
