Last June, volunteers from the Humboldt Hospital Auxiliary were honored
for their service during an awards banquet at the Winnemucca Convention Center.
In all, Auxiliary members were honored for donating 12,746 volunteer hours
to the organization through Fiscal Year 2013-2014, either through service
at the Poke & Peek Thrift Shop (the group's primary source of
income) or through inservice hours at Humboldt General Hospital, special
project hours or meeting hours.
Following a delicious dinner, members were individually honored for hitting
new milestones, including: Kay Austin, Kay DeBord, Susan Glenn, Gial Niva
and Margaret Patchett – 100+ hours; Alicia Cramer and Buck Tipton
– 500+ hours; Joy Dahlka – 1,573 hours; Estella Monarrez –
2,250 hours; Joe Gough and Beverly White – 3,000+ hours; Judi Churchman
– 4,253 hours; Joe McIntyre – 6,476 hours; and Diane Kearns
– 10,000+ hours.
Additionally, Dorothy Fiske received a special award recognizing her donation
of over 14,000 hours to the organization.
Since 1969, the Auxiliary has donated hundreds of thousands of hours and
nearly $2.5 million to the hospital.
"I am very grateful for their efforts," said Humboldt General
Hospital CEO/Administrator Jim Parrish of Auxiliary members. "This
group is a tremendous asset to the hospital."
Also during the annual awards banquet, Auxiliary officers were installed
for the 2014-2015 fiscal year.
Susan Rorex will serve as the organization's president, Judy Adams
will serve as vice president, Susan Harrer will serve as recording secretary,
Joy Darre will serve as corresponding secretary, and Alicia Cramer will
serve as treasurer.
