The Emo and District Hospital Auxiliary's annual fall tea and bake sale was a great success Friday afternoon, with many people attending.
The beautiful log bird feeder was won by Linda Kreger.
A big “thank you” to all who came out from Emo and the surrounding communities to help support the auxiliary's tea and upcoming projects.
The auxiliary will be purchasing the following necessary items for the Emo Health Centre: a pain pump, centrifuge, privacy curtains, and renovations to the shower room.
Meanwhile, in celebration of its 30th anniversary, the auxiliary made its final payment for the renovations at the Emo Clinic.
Thanks to the monetary support of many, this project was achieved.
Donations, including in-memoriams, can be made to the Emo and District Hospital Auxiliary, with charitable tax receipts issued.
Donations may be sent to treasurer Christine Hartry at P.O. Box 505, Emo, Ont., P0W 1E0 or left at the Emo Health Centre with Tracey Grennier.
