MHC Auxiliary News

A number of members joined in the March 25 meeting by teleconference. It’s a unique experience and is quite effective in helping the auxiliary maintain contact and plan in order to continue our mandate for enhancing patient services.

In her opening remarks, President Dawn Orr thanked Carole Labelle for her diligence and Denise Shawana for her technical expertise in putting together our first virtual event, the telethon. It was quite successful. Many supporters from the Island, Ontario and further away contributed to the fundraiser. It’s one of the few ways we have to raise money. Sincere thanks to Robbie Shawana and Maurice Labelle for sharing their musical talents and to Carole Labelle for acting as master of ceremonies with her usual wit and know-how. Robbie Shawana made the telethon possible by use of his Facebook page. Another telethon is in the planning stages to include more entertainers, but that all depends on the status of COVID restrictions.

Donations to the MHC Auxiliary can be made by email to, by cheque at admitting or mail to Marilee Hore, Box 331, Little Current ON., P0P1K0. All donations are gratefully accepted.

The next teleconference is planned for April 22 and will follow the regular agenda for April which includes the regular meeting and the annual meeting. Elections will be held. The nominating committee members are Carole Labelle and Debbie Heise. A guest, Tom Ondrejicka, will be present at the regular meeting.
