Auxiliary members staff a small gift shop in the hospital that is convenient
for patients and visitors to our hospital.

Spring Game & Card Party


Usually held at the Elks Lodge, the game and card party offers Pinochle and Bridge card games and other games as requested. A wonderful dessert bar is presented, fun raffles are held and many gifts are given out. This usually takes place in April.

Annual Holiday Fair


The Holiday Fair is held the first weekend in December at the Lake County Fairgrounds. Booths feature homemade items for your home or for gift-giving. Great food is offered, including homemade pies. This annual event has been going strong for over 35 years.

Improving Lake District's Care


The Auxiliary donations have enhanced areas of the hospital, long term care and hospice. Traditionally, the Lake District Hospital submits a "wish list" that has been reviewed by medical staff to the Auxiliary -- complete with costs for the various items. The Auxiliary then votes on which items they can afford to purchase and submits it to the hospital. Over the past few years, the Auxiliary has donated thousands of dollars worth of equipment and supplies. The contributions include:
Furniture and cribs for pediatric rooms
Equipment for teaching community CPR classes
Equipment for the lab to expedite transfusions
Scales to weigh disabled Long Term Care patients
Items for the dietary department
Electronic thermometers
And many, many more items!

Is membership for you?


Lake District Hospital Auxiliary was established in 1970. Lois Strieby, wife of Dr. William Strieby, was the first president. The Auxiliary's vision of advancing the welfare of the hospital has been a great success over the past 40 years. We are always looking for new members. Active members contribute as little as ten hours of service a year while contributing members support the Auxiliary in other ways. Meeting new friends while providing valuable service are only two of the benefits of being an Auxiliary member.
