The Cranbrook Health Care Auxiliary held its first Annual Life Members Tea on March 14 at the Heritage Inn. The Auxiliary wanted to honour and show their appreciation and respect to those members who have helped to make our organization what it is today.
The volunteers have worked hard for years to raise millions of dollars in funding for equipment for the hospital.
Many members of this exclusive club are still active, including 95-year-old Edith Rose, who is the oldest active member and works the Hospital Information desk twice a month.
Evelyn Botterill, who takes care of Jewellery and Antiques and convenes the Tuesday afternoon shift has been a member for 47 years. Donna Boggs has been a member for 46 years and still works every Saturday morning as co-convenor of her shift.
All of these ladies are dedicated to their work and have made Cranbrook a much healthier place to live in.
