It is summer break for the SRVHA! Here is a review of the past several month’s accomplishments.

Our biggest fundraiser so far has been the Annual Strawberry Tea and Bake sale. We had a lovely turnout for the delicious strawberry shortcake dessert and coffee. The variety of baking on the bake table disappeared, as did the beautiful plants outdoors. Thank you to all who donated plants and baking, helped with the tea, and all who attended. A thank you also to the Swan Valley Coop who donated a $50 gift certificate towards the strawberries and whipped cream; and to the staff in the cafeteria for all their help. The tea raised 723.50. But, also there was the 50/50 draw! Congratulations to Bud Fullerton for winning $1002.50! That means so same amount was raised for the SRVHA! A big thank you to all who bought tickets.

With the money raised at fundraisers; we put in an order for $30,000 for new equipment for the health facility. We also donate $500 each year for a Scholarship at the SVRSS. This scholarship goes to a student going into the medical field.

Also, some used clothing was left at the concession. Thank you. We donated them to “New For You”. We also got a very generous donation from a local citizen. Thank you so much! It will be used toward ordering more equipment.

Such wonderful accomplishments of the SRVHA make us proud to be able to contribute, through all the donations and support of you, the public. It is all toward making our Health Facility more up to date in equipment, providing the best of care possible for patients.

The SRVHA is always looking for new members and fresh ideas. Meetings are held on the first Wednesday of each month, except July and August, at 2:00pm. Ask anyone there to direct you to where the meeting is held, or contact a member. Everyone is welcome!
