Queens General Hospital hosting annual Christmas sale


It’s that time of year again — time to start thinking about shopping for some special somethings to put under the tree.

The Queens General Hospital Auxiliary is once again holding its Christmas sale, with many items marked down and lots of little treasures that will make holidays brighter.

The sale will be held on Thursday, Nov. 23, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., in the main gift shop and also in the Murray Mosher Room next door. As always, there is no HST on any of the items. Cash or cheques are accepted but credit or debit payments are not.

The auxiliary is also selling tickets on a beautiful quilt, with the draw being held in December. Tickets will be available at the sale.

As always, area residents will be able to make a donation ($2 each) by buying a “Christmas Angel” for the auxiliary’s Christmas tree.

The day of the sale will be a “free” day in the hospital parking lot. The hospital policy of wearing a mask while in the building will be enforced.

Over the past 74 years, the Queens General Hospital Auxiliary has raised thousands of dollars and supplied the local hospital with the latest in medical equipment and supplies. By supporting the gift shop, area residents are helping the auxiliary in their goal of continuing to serve the staff of Queens General and the people of Queens County by helping to make the hospital one of the best in Nova Scotia.

Watch the big wall across from the gift shop for the new sign, a history of the auxiliary and the work they have accomplish­ed over the years. There is room on this sign for more, and with the support of area residents, more will be added.
