The Wayne Memorial Hospital Auxiliary held their 33rd Annual Awards Banquet at Unity Church of God. Approximately 100 volunteers, guest and hospital officials were in attendance. Unity hosted the event, providing the meal and servers for hospital volunteers and their guests.
After hearing keynote speaker Rev.

The Auxiliary, as a whole, volunteered a total of 16,306 hours during the last 12 months, equating to approximately eight full-time employees. This year’s group of 30 pin winners has given a total of 71,500 hours of service in their lifetimes to the hospital, equating to approximately 34 full-time employees. According to the Hands On Network, the hours given by the entire group this year (16,306) equals approximately $361,000 in free labor donated back to the hospital.
