• The Henry County Hospital Auxiliary Bazaar was a huge success thanks
to all of you. Because of your participation, donations, purchases and
bidding, the Auxiliary did as well, if not better than last year. In addition
to the fundraising efforts, we were able to build new relationships within
the community and nurture and strengthen our existing relationships. Because
of your participation the Auxiliary will be able to assist with the purchase
of the scopes and cameras in Surgical Care Services Department. The equipment
that will be purchased is used to perform colonoscopies. So yes, regardless
of how you participated in the Auxiliary Bazaar, it will make a difference
and "save lives". What a wonderful thing to be a part of. Thank
you for your participation in such a worthwhile event.
