The ladies Hanna Hospital Auxiliary is in need of some newer, younger members.

These members are in need to keep the non-profit organization running for years to come.

"A lot of our members are quite senior and some of us have been in executive positions for years and years. It would be refreshing to have some younger members to have some new ideas and that would be willing in time to take over duties that executives do," stated President Gloria Hutton.

"We would sure like to increase our membership so that maybe, especially these executive positions, could get passed along," she noted.

Hutton mentioned that there are only eight meetings a year, which isn't a huge commitment.

"Our rummage sales are the biggest workloads of all and we have excellent volunteers to help out with that. We're always in need of more volunteers of course," added Hutton.

"We do one in the spring and that's traditionally the last Saturday of April. Normally our fall one is the last Saturday of October, but this year there is five Saturdays in September, so it will be the last Saturday of September this year."

The Hanna Auxiliary has spent approximately $160,000 in the past three years on IV pumps, blood analyzer machine, a portable ultra sound machine and a lot more.

"We give scholarships to students going on to further their education in a medical field be it dental, lab or optometry," Hutton outlined.

To be part of The Hanna Auxiliary, or to volunteer during a rummage sale, contact Gloria for more information.

"They can contact me or they can come to our next meeting which will be the 2nd Wednesday of May (May 10). It's in the in service room in the hospital and we try to keep our meetings no longer than an hour."
