                                   Announcement from President Candy Sokol
                      Hello Fellow Volunteers! I hope everyone had a fun and festive Thanksgiving.

                      As the year 2010 is coming to an end, let’s reflect upon all of our wonderful
                      accomplishments from the past year. We met our annual pledge of $50,000 and
                      had twelve fundraisers earning nearly $10,000. Our capital Equipment
                      commitment was fulfilled by purchasing a blanket warmer for Radiology. We
                      continued service projects such as Baby Hats, Art in the Schools, Pet Therapy,
                      Puppets, Coloring books for ED and Scholarships. I am very proud of the work we
                      do and our commitment to give back.

                      On January 26th 2011, the Auxiliary wants to share with all volunteers the exciting
                      new look of the volunteer service department.

                      Please plan to attend an informative luncheon to celebrate our past and launch our
                      new future. Hope to see you all there!

Thank you to all who have given hats for our babies at the Harris Birthing Center. The year is almost
over and all our 2010 babies, up to now, have received a hat knitted or crocheted with love by the
wonderful people out there who have given of their time, imagination and dedication. The parents are
so appreciative and the nurses at the birthing center are ecstatic. KEEP THEM COMING!

              Patterns for both knit and crochet hats are available in the Volunteer Office.

   P.S. I would like to personally thank the "No Name" contributors, whoever you are. The hats are
                                 beautiful and so well made. THANKS!
