Washington County Hospital Honors Women’s Auxiliary

            Washington County Hospital Women’s Auxiliary members.

    Washington County Hospital and Medical Group hosted an annual luncheon that honored the WCH Women’s Auxiliary members for their dedication and service to the hospital.

    Thirty-six members were present for the luncheon.

    Nancy Newby, CEO presented each member with a small gift. WCH Board Members, Matt Bierman and Audrey Finke were also present to support the Auxiliary members.

    The Women’s Auxiliary is a wonderful organization of volunteers that has been supporting and helping raise money to buy new equipment for the hospital and the members of our community.

    The Auxiliary raises money by hosting a number of bake sales and craft sales throughout the year.  They also run the Gift Shop in the hospital and the Thrift Shop downtown and volunteer their time to help with the Blood Drives hosted at WCH.

    During the luncheon Melodie Wilkey, President of the WCH Women’s Auxiliary announced their donation to the hospital to help purchase new chairs for the front lobby.

    Thank you again to all the members of the WCH Women’s Auxiliary for the dedication and hard work each and every member gives to help our community and our hospital.

    The Auxiliary consists of over 70 volunteer members and the current officers are Melodie Wilkey, President; Eunice Witte, Vice President; Helen Engele, Secretary; and Bernadine Stein, Treasurer.
