The Centre Grey General Hospital Auxiliary, Markdale is known locally for their management of the PennyWise Shop and Hospital Coffee Kiosk as well as hosting many other fundraising events and activities throughout the year.

Although small in number, the members are always pleased to donate funds to the Centre Grey General Hospital Foundation. In turn, the Foundation  treated the Auxiliary members to a noon luncheon February 21, 2018 and honoured them for their incredible contributions over the years.

The Foundation named the Palliative Care Room in the Auxiliary's honour and a plaque was unveiled and will be displayed outside that room in the hospital.

Foundation Chair, Faye Harrison, explained that besides financial contributions, the Foundation has relied on the Auxiliary to stuff envelopes, to sell tickets, to advertise and volunteer at events and to be the eyes, ears and voices in the community for the Foundation and Hospital.
