CAPE GAZETYE, Friday, August 14 - August 20, 1998 - 35 Beebe Medical Auxiliary pr,00vides tradition of service to community Some of the finest examples of volunteerism are performed on a daily basis at Beebe Medical Cen- ter. In 1936, the auxiliary at Beebe was in its infancy. A handful of women recognized the opportuni- ty to make a significant contribu- tion to the hospital. A few Lewes residents and doctors&apos; wives met to sew hospital bed curtains, make doll clothes for gift shop sales and to furnish a doctor's office. Later, auxiliary fundraising had its beginnings with "bridge teas" and luncheons in members' homes. This gave the auxiliary its first glimpse of the potential of fundraising. Today, auxiliary members num- ber approximately 200. These members symbolize a tradition of service and fundraising that has existed/'or 62 years. Members are easily identified in their pink uni- forms, performing tasks through- out the hospital. Fundraising reached unprece- dented heights in 1994, when the auxiliary pledged $350,000 for the new Women's Health Pavilion, for the purposes of labor and de- livery, and treating women's ill- nesses. The hospital gift shop, staffed and managed by the auxiliary, Nominations sought for Easter Seals award The Easter Seals 1998 National Johanna Cooke Plaut Award hon- ors people with disabilities whose accomplishments have improved communities and have advanced the equality, dignity and indepen- dence of people with disabilities through their example. Nominations are being sought for the award. Award recipients should have built a record of com- draws customers to an especially attractive variety of distinctive gifts at modest prices. Low prices are made possible through auxil- iary volunteer staffing, with auxil- iary saleswomen receiving dis- counts on their own gift shop mer- chandise. The auxiliary craft group, which meets each Tuesday, produces a variety of handmade items that are sold at bazaars in the hospital's Sun Lobby. Donated fabric and other mate- rials allow for very affordable pricing of the items. Fellowship and camaraderie among like- minded women make these meet- ings welcome visits for members. Plans are in the works for future craftmaking and sales. A special book sale is planned for 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Thursday and Friday, Aug. 20 and 21, in the Sun Lobby, and a fine jewelry sale is slated for Friday, Sept. 25. The hospital information desk is a key auxiliary function, as well as an interesting task tbr those who staff it. Visitors stop to ask pa- tients' room numbers and direc- tions. The inlbrmation desk is a busy place, given its close proximity to the Round Table Deli, public tele- phones, gift shop, nearby eleva- munity leadership over a number of years. While some candidates may have chosen to advance the progress of people with disabili- ties, community involvement is equally important. Nominations must be received by Aug. 31.
