On Dec. 8, the La Verendrye Hospital Auxiliary recognized five members with appreciation certificates at its annual Christmas luncheon.
These women are longstanding members who have donated countless hours of behind-the-scenes support.
They work quietly, and are so generous with their time and talents.
Those receiving this award were:
•Vi Plumridge—for knitting baby hats for La Verendrye’s newborns and donating her artwork for every draw or sale;
•Olive Eisenhauer—for her years of working in the gift shop and on the patients’ cart, baking, tag days, and her financial support;
•Joan Ward—for organizing two workers per day for the gift shop and cart workers for years, plus baking;
•Maggie Tarrant—for her copious amounts of knitting for the gift shop, and baking; and
•Georgina Connor—for her many years of working tag days and the cart, and baking.
All these women are present at every function willing to give a helping hand.
Also on Dec. 8, members of 25 years also were recognized and received their 25-year pins. These included June Smith, Lois Witherspoon, Lois Medhurst, and Marjorie Stuart.
Members like these women are truly dedicated to helping enhance our community’s quality of hospital care.
