After a four year hiatus, the Hospital Auxiliary Fashion Show returned. Members of the auxiliary, Ruth McLeod and Dianne Easterling organized the affair.

On Monday, Oct. 22 from 2 to 4 p.m., ladies from the Hospital Auxiliary modelled fashions from The Boutique —(what they fondly call the Princeton Hospital Auxiliary Thrift Store) and while watching the show, audience members were treated to various baked goodies, coffee and tea, made and served by members of the auxiliary.

McLeod said that she and Easterling felt that having a fashion show again was “a good way to introduce new members and to provide some good PR for the store.”

Emcee Laila Bird, welcomed a jam-packed hall of guests, stating that it was, “great to see such a lovely crowd.” “The Boutique,” she added, “is one of the best places to buy clothing in Princeton.”

Servers, spotters and emcee Laila Bird were all wearing clothing that can be purchased at The Boutique. Bird mentioned that she could see that many women in the audience were as well wearing Boutique fashions.

Bird went on to announce the models and give explanation of the fashions they wore. Lynn Boyd, Doreen Poulsen, Grace Rice, Sharron Rose and Joy Linden modelled casual wear, business wear and evening wear.

The afternoon turned out to be a great fundraiser—proof of which was the full house of ladies with smiles enjoying an afternoon out and a fashion show to boot.

The Princeton Hospital Auxiliary is a proud supporter of the community.

They do their best to help provide aid for anything within the medical realm. Princeton General Hospital, Ridgewood Lodge, Penticton Regional Hospital, Princeton Ground Search and Rescue and Princeton Highway Extrication Society have all received support from the auxiliary. They also offer a bursary to the high school for a graduating student going into the medical field.

Bird was very proud to announce that over the last few years the auxiliary has been able to provide $53,151 in financial aid to their beneficiaries.

The auxiliary is very grateful to the community for the support they receive which enables them to offer support to the community in return.

The Boutique (Hospital Auxiliary Thrift Store) is located at 251 Vermilion Ave., and is open Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Stop by and have a look—if you missed the fashion show, you will be surprised at what fashionable items you can find there.
