Your President Sue Cerri –
      It’s amazing that half my term has passed. I hope that everyone enjoyed the annual Volunteer
       luncheon this year and the baseball theme. It’s always fun to try something different. The
       weather couldn’t have been more perfect.
      Welcome to all the new volunteers and to our new students. Let’s everyone be sure to give
       them a warm welcome and help them in every way we can so their experience at Huron Valley-
       Sinai Hospital is a warm one.
      We were presented with a $40,000 check from the Gift Shop in May and $10,000 at our last
       Board Meeting. Thank you Gift Shop workers. We appreciate all the time and effort you put
       into making our Cricket Shop a success.
      We have also been busy with Gold Sales, Pearl Sales, Our Own Special “Gently Used Sale”
       and most recently a Uniform Sale. Our volunteers certainly have been busy. Everyone is
       welcome to sign up for a sale. They are easy and fun to do. It’s also a great way to meet more
       of your volunteers.
      I attended the MAHA Annual convention in June. This year’s theme was, “Volunteers and
       Lilacs, 60 Years of Blooming”. I was accompanied by Barb Brennan, Thelma Hopkins, and
       Candy Sokol. Barbara Bergin was at the event ending her term on the MAHA Board. I am
       proud to announce that she is one of 16 people across the nation that is now on the national
       Board for Hospital Awareness.
      The Open House for the new Sinai Guild Medical Office Building took place September 13.
       Thank you to all for your help that day as we celebrated our newest addition.
      Thank you, everyone, for giving your time!

Your Volunteer Coordinator Deb Moraitis –
      I just arrived back from Europe after spending two weeks with my grandkids! It was an amazing
       trip, but I am available now if you need me.
      Get well wishes to: Kathy Bettelon and Joe LaChappelle.
      Thanks to all of you who donated food for the Harvest Food Gathering. The hospital donated a
       record amount of food and monetary donations.
      Those of you who have not completed Net Learning will be getting a letter from me with
       instructions on the new program. Stay tuned!
      Our office will be adopting another family from Lakes Area Youth Assistance, and if you are
       interested in helping with this, please let me know. I will have a wish list available soon. All
       donations are to be in by the beginning of December.
      If you have not completed the survey I sent you, please bring in and deposit in the blue box near
       your sign-in sheet. It is totally anonymous and this will help me improve the volunteer program.
      Congratulations to Candy Sokol who is our “Thanks for Giving” winner to be honored on
       November 3rd by Chuck Gaidaca at the annual Thanks for Giving event. Candy has truly
       exemplified what outstanding volunteerism is. She has taken on many extra duties this year
       besides being president-elect of your auxiliary, and she brings so much energy to all of our
       activities. Speaking of that, she could really use your help with the upcoming fundraisers listed
       in the calendar section. This is a great way to meet other volunteers, as well as staff, and a way
       to help contribute to the Auxiliary’s bottom line!
