The OKMH Auxiliary held its monthly business meeting on Feb 10, 2011 in the hospital board room. Thirteen members braved the cold weather to attend. Reports were given by Officers, as well as Standing and Appointed committees.

Items of interest include the upcoming jewelry sale. The sale will be a two-day event with extended hours to allow more shopping opportunity! It is scheduled for Monday, March 7th (7am-6pm) and Tuesday, March 8th (7am-4pm). Mark your calendars and watch for notices posted at your favorite businesses in the community. It is a great opportunity for Easter, Mother’s Day and Graduation gift shopping.

In conjunction with the jewelry sale, the Auxiliary will begin selling raffle tickets for an embroidered “bluebonnet” lap quilt to help us celebrate the community Bluebonnet Days in May. Drawing for the quilt will be held during the celebration. Tickets will be $1.00 each or 6 tickets for $5.00.

Attention all area high school seniors! The Auxiliary will once again sponsor scholarships for those graduating seniors who intend to pursue higher education, and ultimately a career, in the medical or a related healthcare field. Our scholarship committee has been appointed and will be contacting your school counselors (Runge, Karnes City, Falls City and Kenedy High Schools) in the very near future. Check with your counselors for specifics on applying for the scholarships. We encourage your endeavors and hope to hear from many of you.

More new items are being received in the Gift Shop. Come by and see what’s new. New orders of purses are expected this week along with a new supply of some of our other most popular gifts.

Proceeds from Gift Shop sales, as all our money-making endeavors, directly benefit and support the hospital. At this (Feb) meeting, we were able to approve expenditures of approximately $10,000 for three items of medical equipment needed for patient care. Our success is a direct reflection of the great support we receive from you…the community we serve.

The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in service to others!
