Spring has sprung and Peace Arch Hospital Auxiliary members are busy planning many new fundraisers.

Spring has sprung and Peace Arch Hospital Auxiliary members are busy planning many new fundraisers.

Our Kwatcha group, which is well known for its famous linen sale each year, is in the hospital lobby today(Wednesday) for a spring linen and collectible sale.

These industrious people have lots to sell, including vintage linens, tablecloths and napkins. They are also selling some silver, china and crystal.

The Aquarius group is gearing up for their sixth annual golf tournament. This will be held on Thursday, May 25 at Nico-Wynd Golf Course.

To register for this event, call Jackie at 604-542-9511.

Registration is at 12:30 p.m. and the tee time is a shotgun start at 1 p.m. A beer and burger is included. There will be prizes for several contests, including closest to the pin and best score, as well as door prizes, a silent auction and a raffle.

We would like to thank everyone who attended or supported the Spring Bridge Luncheon, which was put on byour own Les Papillions group in March.

This event was sold out.

We could not raise the monies that we do without the generous items that are donated by our numerous sponsors.

Our new “Hospital Hoopsters” had a great first season. They booked three games which were held at Semiahmoo Secondary, Earl Marriott Secondary and Southridge School.

This event was a way for our volunteers to interact with students by shooting hoops with students and staff.

I have been told that the auxiliary had some help from some special friends. A great time was had by everyone and most importantly funds were raised by the auxiliary.

This event will happen next year.

The Superfluity Shop has been changed over to spring and summer clothing.

It is exciting to see all new clothing in the shop. Our boutique has some great finds which get sold quickly.

Our gift shop is busy with lots of new things for spring. New items arrive weekly and are reasonably priced.

Our Flower Power group makes fresh flowers each week and are always happy to take orders for special occasions.

To place an order, please call 604-535-4500 and ask for the gift shop

Our Superfluity Shop on Prospect Avenue is always accepting donations of clothing and small household items.If you are able to donate items of furniture, please call the shop at 604-536-7744 and speak to the staff.

The Auxiliary is always looking for new members. If you would like to join this energetic group of people, please pick up an information package at the Superfluity Shop located at 15163 Prospect Ave., or at the information desk in the Peace Arch Hospital lobby, or at
