The Lillian Fraser Memorial Hospital Auxiliary has approximately 48 members and raises funds to help purchase items for the local hospital.

We have three major fundraisers per year. Since 2010 we have purchased over $75,000 worth of equipment for the Hospital. Currently we are working towards building a Healing Garden at the Hospital. This space will be a safe outdoor area for patients, family and healthcare providers to relax in the fresh air.
