On Wednesday, October 23rd, members of the Clinton Lions Club presented the Clinton Public Hospital Foundation with a cheque in the amount of $6000.  The donation from the Lions Club comes from their portion of funds raised from their most recent Catch The Ace lottery, in which they partnered with Clinton’s Royal Canadian Legion.  The donation has been made towards this year’s Radiothon project goal, in an effort to raise $40,000 towards the new accessible shower room on the in-patient unit at the hospital.  Last December, the Lions Club had donated $4000 to the Foundation from their previous Catch The Ace lottery, bringing their total donations from this lottery to $10,000 for the Clinton Public Hospital.

It is wonderful to have such supportive community organizations, raising funds for our local hospital, to help ensure that our hospital has necessary private financial support to reinforce the existing strengths of our hospital and to keep pace with future technology.  We truly appreciate those who participated by purchasing tickets and are very grateful to the Clinton Lions Club, for their continued support of the hospital.  Thank you!
