Thank you to everyone who donated or purchased pies at the famous Boundary Community Hospital Auxiliary Pie Sale on Thursday, Feb. 21. The 56 pies were sold out by Noon and the Auxiliary raised more than $1,100.
A special thank you to Chic-n-Chop, Safeway, Super 1 Foods, Soul Shine Bistro, multiple local churches, and hospital employees. Hospital staff purchased 27 pies and desserts from the event, some of them shared with their co-workers.
We appreciated folks stopping by for a piece of pie and a cup of coffee, including Sheriff Kramer and several Hospital Trustees, so we could visit with them and catch up on county news. And thank you to Dr. Roland Hall from Bonners Ferry Veterinary Clinic for purchasing the last pie of the day!
Over the past year, monies raised through the annual pie sale and Hospital soda pop sales have been used to purchase two-way radios for the nursing staff in the Extended Care Facility; rolling stools and stainless steel instrument table for Surgery; isolation room door caddies and hangers; patient scale with handles for Boundary Community Clinics; and a commercial grade vacuum for Housekeeping.
The Hospital Auxiliary, started in 1954 originally to assist at the Hospital, is seeking new active members to join the group. If you are interested, please come to the next meeting on March 12 at 11:30 a.m. at Chic-N-Chop. Women and men are welcome.
