May 10 is Auxiliary Day to recognize the groups’ contributions to communities across the country.
The local Fort St. James Hospital Auxiliary works to raise money for hospital equipment, helps maintain some garden space at the hospital for patients and helps coordinate some in-hospital volunteering. Each year the group holds a dart turkey shoot in the fall as well to raise funds.
Look for the Hospital Auxiliary at an upcoming Farmer’s Market. The group will be setting up a table and offering tea, coffee and snacks to help educate the community on what they do and to get more people involved.
Anyone interested in getting involved with the hospital auxiliary can contact Julianne Mortenson at 996-7485 or attend one of the group’s monthly meetings at the hospital on the second Wednesday of the month at 7 p.m..
