Auxiliary members attend district meeting
Eight members of Mercy Hospital Berryville Auxiliary attended the Northwest District Fall meeting held Oct. 25 in Simmons Hall at John Brown University in Siloam Springs.
AHAA President Jan Gardner and President-Elect Kathy Gammill were guests at the meeting. Gardner spoke on how volunteers plant seeds of kindness, which is her theme for the year.
Gammill explained the four state projects – Alzheimer’s program which furnished Coach Frank Broyles’ “Play Book” to caregivers; H.E.L.P which is a helm sticker program; Look Before You Lock which is a method of reminding everyone to check the back seat for an infant – or even a pet; and the Scholarship Program. AHAA has two scholarship endowments to the University of Arkansas for the College of Nursing and College of Health Professionals.
Presidents of the eight district auxiliaries presented reports from their auxiliaries on the projects they have been involved with from April to September of this year.
Door prizes were drawn with two members from each auxiliary present receiving prizes.
After a blessing by Siloam Springs Auxiliary Chaplain Jim Gossardt, a delicious luncheon was enjoyed by all.
