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.
