The Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Auxiliary
is looking for volunteers!


OCTOBER 11 FROM 2 – 4 P.M.
in the Board Room, PEC Memorial Hospital

The PEC Memorial Hospital Auxiliary is pleased to extend an invitation to anyone interested in joining the Auxiliary as a volunteer. Our volunteers are involved with hospital, community and fundraising programs.

At present, we need help at the Coffee Shop, the Second Time Around Shop, the Festival of Trees, with Coffee Cart services and some in-hospital services. We are also looking for anyone with leadership abilities and for volunteers to help out with our media work : events photography, liaising with print and electronic media and preparations (editing and graphics) of our newsletters.

Representatives from the various committees will be on hand to discuss these volunteer opportunities, and to answer any questions you may have.

Refreshments will be served.
