KENTON — The Hardin Memorial Hospital Guild recently held its annual
Spring Luncheon at Henry’s Restaurant in Kenton. The luncheon tables
were decorated with bird houses and flower baskets filled with mints.
Linda Smith, emcee and Secretary of the HMH Guild, welcomed all the
attendees and thanked them for their attendance. A delicious meal,
prepared by Henry’s, was enjoyed and served by the Spring Luncheon
committee. Mark Seckinger, president of HMH, updated the group on the
hospital’s renovation and expansion project to the Emergency Department,
gave a physician update and thanked the Guild and the attendees for
their contribution and support for the hospital.
The entertainment for this year’s luncheon was provided by the Kenton
High School cast of Snoopy. They performed various numbers from the
play which is scheduled for this weekend.
A raffle was held that included many items donated by various local
businesses as well as the table arrangements given as door prizes. The
Spring Luncheon, along with its raffle, is a major fundraiser for the
Guild. All proceeds go toward the purchase of new hospital equipment.
For Fiscal Year 2013-2014, the Guild applied over $20,000 toward gifts
for the hospital as well as supplies for the many projects they do for
the patients. .
