Auxiliary society lauded for work

The Mission Healthcare Auxiliary Society was honoured on June 10 for its $300,000 contribution to the Mission Possible

Auxiliary president Wendy Matus and vice-president Alyce Campbell spoke at a garden party held in honour of the Mission Mission Healthcare Auxiliary Society.

The Mission Healthcare Auxiliary Society was honoured on June 10 for its $300,000 contribution to the Mission Possible fundraising campaign.

The campaign is in support of The Residence in Mission, affectionately known as “TRIM.”

A garden party, hosted by the Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation and the Mission Memorial Hospital’s Wellness Committee, was also an opportunity to thank the auxiliary for its hands-on work year-round in addition to fundraising.

A plaque was erected in the central courtyard, which has now been re-named the Auxiliary Butterfly Garden in honour of the auxiliary’s symbol. The name is also on two trellises.

Two California lilac trees were planted with the plaque.

Linda Swan, a resident, spoke on behalf of all the residents, many of whom attended with the help of care aides. Auxiliary president Wendy Matus and vice-president Alyce Campbell spoke at the event. Matus said how honoured they were to be able to financially support the hospital and the residence, and hinted of “more to come.”

TRIM, a 200-bed facility adjacent to Mission Memorial Hospital, recently celebrated its one-year anniversary.
