Boorowa Hosts United Hospital Auxiliary Regional Forum
Members of the United Hospital Auxiliary from all areas of the Murrumbidgee Health Area travelled to Boorowa on Thursday 7th of April to attend the Regional Forum of United Hospital Auxiliaries at the Boorowa Ex Services and Citizens Club on Pudman Street.
The event was commenced with a Welcome to Country by Aunty Donna Morgan, who welcomed the guests and gave a short summary of her family history.This was followed by the National Anthem played on the piano by Mary Corcoran.
Regional Representative Liane Preinbergs then introduced the new incoming State President, Tracy Wilkinson from Orange. Tracy thanked the volunteers who work tirelessly for their hospitals where 100 per cent of money raised is given straight to local hospitals.
The guest speaker was Angus Mitchell, president of Boorowa Business Chamber. Angus spoke of his most interesting life from leaving Scotland at 10 years old to his retirement in Boorowa with plenty of fun and laughs along the way.
The raffle was then drawn, and a lucky representative from Tumut was very happy with her prize.
Luncheon was then served and the regional reports for the year were read out. These reports were most interesting to hear as there are many different ways which help raise much needed funds.
Vice President Kaye Doemling read the report for Boorowa. Five events happened in the year: the Mother’s Day Stall, the Melbourne Cup Day, the Christmas Raffle, the new Community Calendar and the Pop up tea room at the Boorowa Show.
Special thanks was given to Bendigo Bank, Boorowa IGA and the community of Boorowa for helping the Boorowa group raise $12,000 in the year.
