Thank you to the Chesterville Bridge Club who have made a $1,000 donation to the WDMH Auxiliary. The club meets every Monday afternoon from September to mid-May at The Gathering House. Members come from the surrounding area to play cards for a weekly fee of $4.

“We are so fortunate to have our hospital and are pleased that our bridge club has to date been able to raise $26,000 to the Auxiliary over more than a decade,” notes club member Karen Graham.  “The Bridge Club is grateful to our members for their support in raising funds for WDMH. Together we can make a difference and help make our WDMH better able to serve the needs of the surrounding communities.”

“We would like to thank The Chesterville Bridge Club for their continued and ongoing support. We are grateful for their most recent donation and look forward to continuing our friendship,” sum up Eleanor Jordan and Louise Arsenault, Auxiliary Co-Presidents.

Thank you as well to The Gathering House for supporting this fundraiser and allowing the club to use its facility.
