Auxiliary presents Glacier View Lodge with money for equipment

Marilyn Farnham, president of the Auxiliary to Glacier View Lodge presented a donation of $3,500 to Wanda McMillan, executive director, Glacier View Lodge. The Auxiliary to Glacier View Lodge supported the Lodge since 1982. Donations through this year have supported the replacement of equipment, the Music Therapy Program, special events for residents and filled in gaps for individual residents’ needs.

“You are a small but mighty group of people,” said McMillan. “We are tremendously grateful for your ongoing support of the Lodge.”

The donation represents many, many hours of work on behalf of the small number of Auxiliary members. The members have been at many community locations this year selling 50-50 tickets, gift bags and other handmade items. They were pleased to present the 50-50 raffle prize of $3,000 to M. Cameron.

Those with some time and a passion for supporting seniors, are invited to call the Lodge about volunteer opportunities at 250-338-1451. Those who have an interest in joining the Auxiliary are invited to attend their next meeting on January 8, 2020, at 12:30 p.m. at the Lodge.
