War Memorial Hospital Auxiliary

The War Memorial Hospital Auxiliary was established in 1947. Each year, more than 50 volunteers donate their time and energy to the hospital, supporting the paid staff and assisting patients and their families. Volunteers also raise funds for the hospital by having an Annual Card and Game Party along with many other fundraising events throughout the year.
