The Auxiliary held the Annual General Meeting at Beban Park on March 28th. This is the first time since 2019 that the Auxiliary has held an in-person general meeting. About 72members turned out for the meeting and a wonderful luncheon was put on once again by Spice of Life.
Of note this year is that the Auxiliary donated $502,000 to NRGH for equipment funding and patient care and comfort needs. In a year that both the Gift Shop and the Thrift Store were operating at less than full operation, we exceeded our expectations of what the citizens of Nanaimo can contribute.
In a rare presentation, the Auxiliary recognized the long service of members Darlene Kuffert, Jenny Robling, and Phil Robling for volunteering over 5,000 hours. This group of three, has been volunteering for a combined total of 44 years at the Auxiliary!
