“We raise funds to help our doctors buy equipment who are always in need. It seems like we get requisitions for need information, new equipment monthly. This is our goal is to help buy hospital equipment.”

Dechaine said the event is a fun one to plan and participate in.

“I have a great committee helping me and every volunteer from the Bonnyville Auxilians partakes which makes it a great event.”

Dechaine thanked Lakeland Credit Union, Sobey’s, and members from the Auxiliary for helping put on the Strawberry Tea.

The Bonnyville Health Care Centre Auxilians will once again be awarding two bursaries of $1000.00 each to students enrolled in and attending a health related program.
