The Burgess Auxiliary Officers and Board would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you who have supported the Auxiliary with volunteer service and financial support. We are an active group, always looking for more members and volunteers.
The annual membership fee is $10.00. Anyone wishing to become a Life Member can do so by paying dues of $50.00. If you prefer, this $50.00 payment can be made over a two year period. Life members are exempt from additional dues. To become a member stop by and fill out a form. They are available at the Burgess Health Center information desk or at Act II in downtown Onawa.
Our gift shop, opened in 2007, continues to be a successful venture. It is located adjacent to the main entrance and lobby. The shop has a large variety of interesting items - including fresh flowers.
We continue to be amazed at the income Act II generates for the Auxiliary. We have a great manager, wonderful volunteers, and a dedicated chairman who keep things running smoothly. New volunteers are always welcome.
Each fall we hold a craft show.
LOBBY GREETER DESK and SURGERY INFORMATION DESK
Volunteers staff the greeter's desk in the lobby and admissions area of the hospital and the surgery waiting area where they assist the families of the surgery patients. Volunteers are also available to drive patients to and from their appointments at the hospital.
Scholarships are awarded each spring to area students studying in a health related field. Applications are available each spring, and will be accepted until April 1 (approximately). Click here to print an application (pdf).
CHRISTMAS STOCKINGS - NEW YEAR BABY - BABY CAP AND BOOTIE SETS
Babies born during the month of December receive Christmas Stockings from the Auxiliary. The New Year Baby is presented with a beautiful handmade gift. The Auxiliary gives all newborns baby caps and booties knitted by volunteers, and the Whiting Christian Church Ladies Outreach Group furnishes layettes to the OB department to be used as needed for newborns.
