For the past 63 years, the Ladies Auxiliary has worked with the Huntingdon County Hospital (HCH) to ensure the general well-being of the residents.

In the past, they have contributed to everything from the purchase of resident holiday and birthday gifts to the funding of a music therapy program to the furnishing of both the palliative care rooms and the family room. Their efforts also encourage a youth volunteer program. On Friday, March 31st, the Ladies Auxiliary will hold its annual spring Bazaar and Dinner—its only fundraiser of the year. Last year, the event raised a little under $4,000. In 2017, all monies raised will be used to fund a new pet therapy program.

The Bazaar will start at 9:30 A.M.—shoppers will find various items, both new and used. The goods will include items such as books, furniture and homemade items. Hungry visitors will be able to feast on a spaghetti supper as of 11:00 A.M. (take-out will be made available), with the kitchen closing at 1:00 P.M. Dinner is available to adults for $10, and $5 to children aged six to 12 (those under six enjoy dinner free of charge).

For those wishing to contribute, consider becoming a member of the Ladies Auxiliary for 2017 for a five-dollar fee.
