Trees shed light on important campaigns at Picton hospital

Christmas is under way at Picton hospital as supporters and friends gathered for the second annual tree lighting ceremony.
The sound of music from Paul Johnson and Rob Kellough’s ‘Through the Cedars Music Productions’  filled the air as the crowd munched on cookies, mingled and drank hot chocolate while awaiting the start of the festivities.
The Primary Care Provider Choir sang ‘Ding Dong Merrily on High’ and ‘Joy to the World’ before Hospital Auxiliary president Fran Donaldson and members Nancy Finnegan and Sue Law tipped the switch to light the tree on the hospital grounds. The Choir continued with ‘We Wish you a Merry Christmas’.

Angela Wayte, who works at Picton's Patient Registration, won the draw for the Gingerbread House created by Betty Branscombe and her daughter Barb Fowler. Betty is shown here with nieces Jazmine, Katelyn and Amanda.

Angela Wayte, who works at Picton’s Patient Registration, won the draw for the Gingerbread House created by Betty Branscombe and her daughter Barb Fowler, who works in the dietary department. Tickets for the draw raised approximately $150 which will be directed to the hospital’s Digital Mammography Campaign. The choir’s final song of the evening was ‘Silent Night’.
Hospital Foundation Executive Director Anna Marie Ferguson also thanked the maintenance staff, Bruce Walker, Tim Hewton and Randy Wilkinson who helped with the lighting and to Cline Pierson of Pierson’s Foodland for donating the Christmas cookies.
Foundation president Larry Matheson expressed thanks on behalf of the Board of Directors to everybody who attended and those who are supporting the fundraising campaign.

Decoration of the tree located in the hospital near the patient registration area continues. The public is welcome to place a pink ribboned card in honour of those who have fought, and continue to fight, cancer.

The Primary Care Provider Choir includes Sylvia Kempers, RN, Dr. Adrienne Selbie, Dr. Lois Russell, Dr. Helen Cluett, Dr. Elizabeth Christie and Dr. Blair Scrivens.
