WCH Honors Women’s Auxiliary Members
This past week Washington County Hospital and Medical Group hosted its annual luncheon that honors the WCH Women’s Auxiliary members for their dedication and service to the hospital. Thirty-five members were present for the luncheon. Nancy Newby, CEO presented each member with a small gift. The WCH Board Members, Matt Bierman, Kevin Rench, and Audrey Finke were also present to support the Auxiliary members. The WCH 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 complete the remodel of 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. If you would like more information about the WCH Women’s Auxiliary or would like to become a member please contact Melodie Wilkey at 618-314-0155.
