The Cootamundra branch of the United Hospital Auxiliaries held its annual general meeting in July, also celebrating the 85th anniversary of the local unit.
The election of office bearers resulted in a committee of president Janice Slattery, vice-president Margaret Young, secretary Joan Collins, treasurer Marjory Taprell and patrons Jenny McClintock and Gloria Schultz.
Branch members Marjory Taprell and Joan Jenkins were presented with 10-year service badges. The auxiliary purchased $20,000 of equipment for Cootamundra Hospital during 2018-19, the most significant purchase being a Biliblanket to help with the treatment of newborn babies.
An anniversary cake, made and decorated by Joan Jenkins, was cut to celebrate 85 years of fundraising.
