Making a difference in Mission
The Mission Healthcare Auxiliary Society has been recognized for its fine efforts and $300,000 contribution to the TRIM residential facility (The Residence in Mission).  Staff at the Mission Memorial Hospital hosted an English Tea Party during which a scenic outdoor area was officially named “The Auxiliary Butterfly Garden.”  Pictured are (from left) Gertrud Rummel, Pat Parent, Linda Dennis, Elaine Vanderspek and Andi Oldale.  Congratulations to the Mission Auxiliary and its president Wendy Matus, and to its many dedicated volunteers.
