End of long pres­i­dency

Isis Town and Country - - Kolan News -

THE Gin Gin Hos­pi­tal Aux­il­iary farewelled its long-serv­ing pres­i­dent Anne Pearce at a spe­cial lunch last Mon­day at the Star­burst restau­rant.

Mrs Pearce was the pres­i­dent of the Gin Gin Hos­pi­tal Aux­il­iary for 25 years and was a main driv­ing force to the ever grow­ing Gin Gin Hos­pi­tal.

This year the hos­pi­tal aux­il­iary raised a mas­sive $12,000 at its an­nual Christ­mas cent sale.

Mrs Pearce said even though she was step­ping down as pres­i­dent she still wanted to be part of the aux­il­iary.

“I have en­joyed my time as the hos­pi­tal aux­il­iary pres­i­dent and I have seen great changes to the hos­pi­tal,” Mrs Pearce said.

Her tire­less en­ergy was cel­e­brated with fel­low aux­il­iary mem­bers in con­junc­tion with their Christ­mas party.

The hum­ble vol­un­teer was given a beau­ti­ful gold brooch as a to­ken of thanks.

“I thank ev­ery­one and all I want to say, I can’t understand why more peo­ple don’t join the hos­pi­tal aux­il­iary. We all be­come fam­ily and we all sup­port each other,” she said.

The hos­pi­tal aux­il­iary re­lies heav­ily on do­na­tions and char­ity events.

The team of ded­i­cated vol­un­teers are in search for new mem­bers to join and to sup­port their com­mu­nity’s own hos­pi­tal.

The pres­i­dent po­si­tion was handed to Kay Hughes and the hos­pi­tal aux­il­iary mem­bers are ex­cited for the com­ing year.

Mrs Hughes said she wished Anne well and hoped to ful­fil the role as pres­i­dent to the best of her abil­ity.

“The hos­pi­tal aux­il­iary are al­ways look­ing for new mem­bers and en­cour­ages younger mem­bers of the com­mu­nity to join,” Mrs Hughes said.

NEW PRES­I­DENT: Anne Pearce and Kay Hughes enjoy the Christ­mas feast and thank the aux­il­iary mem­bers.
