Letters to the Editor
The SMH Auxiliary would like to thank everyone in Manistique and surrounding communities who have supported the Love Lite Tree campaigns. With the 2012 campaign getting underway, we invite everyone to purchase bulbs for $3 per light for special people in your lives. You have until Dec. 31 to do so. The people you have bought bulbs for will have their names displayed on our plaque in the hospital lobby. With the advent of the new hospital, we are making plans for a new display at the new facility.
There will be forms in the Advisor in the Nov. 12 and Dec.10 editions, or you can pick up selfaddressed envelopes at many local businesses. You can also use your own envelopes for a donation and mail to SMH Auxiliary, P.O. Box 88, Manistique, MI 49854.
With the money raised from last year’s campaign, the auxiliary contributed to C.A.R.E. Schoolcraft Search and Rescue, and purchased equipment for SMH departments including: Cardiac Rehab, Emergency, and Home Health Care.
This year we are excited to announce that Ann Bradshaw and Renee Chandler will sing and play guitars at our Love Lite Tree Lighting ceremony on Monday, Dec. 3 at 6:30 p.m. at the hospital. We will gather around the Love Lite Tree and sing some Christmas Carols, and then go inside to listen to Ann and Renee perform. There will be cookies, cocoa and coffee afterwards. Everyone is welcome, so please join us for this festive event. Again, thank you for your support, and we wish you happy holidays.
I want to thank the Friends of Schoolcraft County MSU Extension for their efforts to work to campaign to pass a millage to support reopening our local office. While MSU Extension does not have an office in Schoolcraft County, one can find many of our exciting programs at: http://msue.anr.msu.edu/ or you can call me direct at (906) 203-7302.
Big thank you to the Mustard Seed, Ben Franklin/Peoples, Floyd’s and the Shadow Box, for the after hours ladies night. What a fun evening of food, specials and drawings. A real home town atmosphere. First time I have attended and had a great time. Just think what it would be like if everyone stayed open late for this!
