The Otto Kaiser Memorial Hospital Auxiliary held its’ monthly business meeting on Thursday, Oct. 11, with 14 members present at 9:30 a.m. in the hospital board room. Prior to calling the meeting to order, members received an interesting and informative presentation given by Director of Nursing, Audrey Gomez. The subject of the presentation was “HIPAA” (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996). Audrey covered specific areas of privacy and confidentiality which are protected and our responsibilities as auxiliary members in this regard. After the presentation, President Emma Villanueva called the meeting to order. Monthly reports were presented by officers as well as standing and appointed committee members.

Of special note was the report of Ways and Means Chairman, Patsy Marchant, concerning final details of the Fall Jewelry Sale. Another major topic of discussion is the Tamale Sale scheduled to be held on Friday, Nov. 16. More details will be finalized and published as the event nears.

Watch for flyers in your neighborhood and an update article in this publication. Tamales will be sold on a first come/first served basis with regular and spicy flavors available. If you would like to pre-order/reserve your tamales, you may call or come by the Gift Shop, 583-4507 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Minimum pre-order of 10 dozen, please.

While you’re there, don’t forget to take a chance on the quilt being raffled. The quilt is approximately 55”x 65” and features a variety of embroidered Jacobean Birds on floral branches on a pale sage green tone-on-tone background. It even has scalloped edges. Tickets are $1 each or 6 tickets for $5. The drawing will be held in November during the upcoming Tamale Sale.

As always, all proceeds from these, or any of our fund-raising efforts, directly benefit the Otto Kaiser Memorial Hospital. We thank you in advance for your continued support of Auxiliary efforts.

Please Note: The Gift Shop will be closed on the afternoon of Wednesday, Oct. 24 and all day on Thursday, Oct. 25 so that our members can attend our Texas Hospital Volunteer Association District 8 meeting in Fredericksburg.

Our next business meeting will be Thursday, Nov. 8 at 9:30 a.m. in the Hospital Board Room.
