    The Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Auxiliary Craft Group and The OPP have provided this invaluable service for our community for many years. I recall using the service when Tracy and I were just starting our Family, That time of year was a struggle and those Folks helped to make it a whole lot easier. So Thank You, all of You.
