Betty Williams has been a member of our Auxiliary for 27 years! Most of her time has been at the Pineapple Gift Shop. She began as a buyer, along with her friend Edie Lysaght. They oversaw purchasing at the shop when Beanie Babies were all the rage! Betty remembers the days when people lined up outside the door of the shop at the old hospital when they heard a new shipment had arrived! Betty has also served on the Auxiliary Board of Directors in several positions. She served as the 2nd VP for programs and on the nominating committees. Betty was a volunteer at all the Mistletoe Markets making wreaths and arrangements to sell among many other duties. Betty became a life member of the Auxiliary in 2013. Life membership is given by vote of the Auxiliary Board to past or current members who have provided outstanding and notable service the Auxiliary for 10 or more continuous years. By our last Appreciation Tea on April 24th, Betty received her pin for achieving 10,000 volunteer hours for the Auxiliary and the hospital! This is the highest recognition a volunteer at SWRMC can receive! And it is well deserved. Betty’s dedication and joy for all she does is recognized by everyone who knows her and meets her. She still volunteers at the Pineapple Gift Shop every week. If you are in hospital on Friday morning, please stop I and visit/purchase from Betty! Isn’t it wonderful that our hospital community has such amazing volunteers! Everyone in our Auxiliary appreciates all her dedication to it’s programs through all these years. Heres to you Betty Williams and thank you! … See MoreSee Less
