Going out with a bang

The Mount Forest Kin Club announced last week that they would be wrapping up operations due to a lack of members. However, before closing up shop the service organization announced that they would be "giving back to the community that has given us so much" by donating nearly $25,000 to 10 different local groups to help with their efforts. One of those donations was to the Louise Marshall Hospital Foundation in the amount of $18,500 to help with the emergency room and ambulatory care expansion and renovation. Presenting LMHF treasurer Lynn Lamont (second from right) with the cheque were Kin Club members, from left, Gord Trecartin, Murray Calder and Lynn Williamson.

Early Christmas present

It's an early Christmas present according to Louise Marshall Hospital Foundation vice-president Rick Sinnamon, as he announced at an open house on Nov. 30 that the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care has given their approval for North Wellington Health Care to proceed to Stage 3 planning of the emergency room and ambulatory care areas of the Louise Marshall Hospital. Joining Sinnamon (left) for the announcement was Jane Ford (right), development officer for the LMHF.
