Donation and tea a roaring success

On December 4, the Rainy River Hospital Auxiliary held their annual Tea and Bazaar at the Rainy River Legion. The event was well attended and a great success. This year’s goal was to raise funds to purchase a new Emergency Stryker Stretcher for the Rainy River Hospital to replace the existing 25-year-old stretcher. The WWRR Lions Club made a do- nation to the Auxiliary to assist this worthy cause. President Richard Trenchard on behalf of the Lions Club made a donation of $8500.

On hand to accept the donation were, left to right, Auxiliary members Georgina Jarvis, Nancy Scaak, Eleanor Wiersema, Donna McDonald and Auxiliary President Elsie Gerula, joined by Richard Trenchard.
