New year begins for Lake Auxiliary

After a very busy but successful November and December whereby our members successfully attended three bazaars and sold raffle tickets, we met on Thursday, January 6 for our first get-together of the new year.

Due to weather, namely, snow on the ground, there were only 19 members present.

Everyone who braved the elements enjoyed exchanging happy holiday reviews with each other and looking forward to another year as volunteers and Auxilians.

After such a busy fall, January is a very quiet month for us.

There are those who continue to volunteer at Duncan Hospital, Cairnsmore Place, helping at Flu clinics, the local Health Unit, Mammogram Clinics or where ever they are needed; those who continue to knit and do craft items in anticipation of next year’s fund raising endeavours and to help stave off the wet, snowy days in Lake Cowichan and those who participate in all these activities.

Reflecting back on our last two months of 2010, it is important to thank all those who participated in the bazaars and raffle sales, which are such a focus for us, as the money we make is the contribution we make to the local hospitals to help with the purchase of equipment, which continually improves services to all those who use Cowichan District Hospital facilities.

Those who help with these activities are Lake Auxiliary Members, the public who attend the events, the Bargain Shop and Country Grocer who facilitate us by giving us space to sell our raffle tickets.

At our December luncheon at the Shaker Mill, the members had a very productive meeting that concluded with the raffle draw and a lovely luncheon.
