At the last meeting of the year for the Jerilderie Hospital Auxiliary, deputy regional representative Chrissy Ellis gave a report on the recent State Conference of UHA (United Hospital Auxiliaries) held in Bankstown.
She also came home bearing the Andrea Mulligan Trophy for the auxiliary that raised the most money for an MPS (multi purpose service), in 2012.
Jerilderie members were surprised and delighted to win this trophy, which will reside in pride of place in the Jerilderie Community Centre for the next twelve months.
Members were also pleased with the final financial outcome of the November 4 Hospital Fete, which was nearly $6000, thanks to the terrific support of the wider community.
Members are asked to advise Loretta or Sara by December 5, if they will be attending the Christmas luncheon being hosted by the staff at the hospital on December 12, at 11.30am.
The Auxiliary Christmas dinner is being planned at the Colony Inn Hotel for Monday December 10, for members and husbands/partners/friends.
Names for catering purposes to be in to Judy Ryan by December 3, please.
