A Veterans appreciation dinner, hosted by the Redmond American Legion Post 118, will be held Friday, October 9, 2015 at 6:30 p.m. at the Redmond Town Hall. All local veterans and their spouse are invited to attend.
Gunnison Valley Hospital Volunteers will have their annual Book and Gift Fair to raise money for hospital volunteer programs and charities on Thursday, October 15 and 16 in the front corridor of the hospital.
Dave Edgel of Books Are Fun will bring a wide variety of books and gift ideas for the holiday season for customers to peruse.
The volunteer program at the Gunnison Valley Hospital began 10-years ago and has contributed to a number of items for the hospital including two TVs, VCRs, and the stands to put them on in order for patients to enjoy movies instead of watching television. They’ve also purchased a number of great movies for patients to choose from.
The volunteers are having a special bookcase made to compliment the new decor in the hospital lobby. Patients and patrons will be able to choose a book to read while in the hospital or as they wait for testing or surgical procedures.
Monies raised from this book sale will go toward other volunteer and charity programs at the hospital.
The public is encouraged to attend this annual Book Sale on Thursday, October 15 from 11:00 a.m. until 7:00 P.M. and Friday, October 16 from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 P.M.
