Barnesville Hospital is extremely grateful for the dedication of our Auxiliary Officers and for all Twig and Leaf members, said David Phillips, CEO, Barnesville Hospital. Our Auxiliary members donate their time and talents to benefit our Hospital and the communities we serve. They make a significant difference in the lives of others.
The Twig and Leaf members worked hard throughout the year sponsoring numerous fundraisers such as Bake Sales, Luncheons, Sundae Sales, Book Fairs, Jewelry Sales and the annual Golf Scramble. Members also volunteered their time and talents throughout the Hospital, delivering Meals on Wheels, donating magazines, serving on Boards and donating funds to the Hospital.
It is my privilege to work with so many wonderful women, said Ruth Anderson, Director of Volunteers. They continually inspire me with their energy, their creativity and their desire to make a difference for all of our patients, our Hospital and the communities we serve.
