The WMHS Auxiliary is devoted exclusively to providing meaningful assistance to the patients and staff of the Western Maryland Health System. The focus of making contributions of time, ideas and effort is the very core of the organization. The present Auxiliary was founded in 2004 through the merging of two separate Auxiliaries, the Memorial Hospital Auxiliary and the Sacred Heart Hospital Auxiliary. Today the WMHS Auxiliary is comprised of over 300 men and women who offer their volunteer services for a variety of projects, as well as hosting the area’s premier fundraiser, the annual WMHS Auxiliary Snow Ball. The Auxiliary also sponsors numerous sales throughout the year which feature items such as jewelry, handbags, books and uniforms. Auxiliary members are proud to continue the tradition of serving as ambassadors between WMHS and its community. The new officers are:
• President, Betty Jo Gehauf
• President Elect, Kelli Allaway
• Vice President, Mirjhana Buck
• Treasurer, Mary Ann Reinhard
• Corresponding Secretary, Joann Barrera
• Recording Secretary, Mary Shrout
