The involvement of local residents with HMH can be traced back to 1973. The first meeting of HMH was held on June 26, 1973 with Sister Marie Adam Administrator of the hospital as Honorary President and Anne Hartman, President. At that time, the Hospital Auxiliary membership of 108 was soon engaged in all kinds of projects; bridge tournaments, bingos, Tag day during Hospital Week, showers for the Tuck Shop and a June Tea to member only a few.
One of their “fun” projects was making favours for the patients’ trap in special occasions during the year. These were lovely and helped to add a little cheer to one’s stay in the hospital.
Our Auxiliary over these years has provided the funds to purchase much needed hospital equipment, the last major project being the funding and furnishing of the palliative care room in our new hospital.
While the Auxiliary is no longer active, dedicated volunteers continue to support the hospital in many ways, managing the tuck shop and bringing the cart onto the active care unit each day for the patients, involved in any fun raising events, Tree of Lights, raffles, tag days, etc…
The Hospital is always looking for volunteers to assist, if you are interested please call the hospital 705-744-5511 and leave your name with registration and someone will get back to you or click below.
