Busy year for Melita Health Auxiliary

The Melita Health Auxiliary held a very successful tea and bake sale on Saturday, November 3, at the Melita Golden Age Centre. The long bake table was covered with a large variety of very delicious goodies to purchase. This was attended by Florence Murray and Ellen Carels. Jo-ann Thompson greeted everyone at the door. Faye McLoughlin looked after the tickets for the grocery hampers which were won by Mary Atkinson and Bev Barsness. Deb Tilbury looked after the raffle tickets on a $50 dollar bill. Evelyn Andrews was the lucky winner.

The servers who kept everyone’s cups full with their beverage of choice was Marnie Hodgins, Dale Patterson, Jackie Skocylas and Irene Kobs. Jean Hicks and Connie Renwick made the sandwiches. Kitchen workers keeping the coffee and tea pots and the plates of sandwiches and dainties full were Trudy Dickson and myself, Nelda Wilkinson. We would like to extend our appreciation to everyone for donations and for attending our tea. This money goes to items that are needed at the Hospital and Personal Care Home.

The Melita Health Auxiliary members served coffee or juice and cookies at the Flu Clinic in Melita on November 5. The money raised goes towards purchasing items for the Hospital and Personal Care Home.

The annual Sparkle of Life will be held Sunday, December 2, 7:00 p.m., at the Melita Personal Care Home. You can purchase a coloured bulb “in memory” of a dear one or a clear one for a “message of love and hope”. Following the lighting of the Christmas tree, the Auxiliary members will be serving refreshments. Everyone welcome.
