Orchids to j\Irs. Perry Whitlock of
(’oviiigtoii, Va., who has made still
another generous donation to the
Auxiliary. Mrs. Whitlock made it
possible for us to have an emergency
fund, with her donation of $100 last
year. Then, she presented a very
fine folding wheel chair to the Auxil
iary, which lends it to patients who
need it. Recently, she sent us eight
dozen dish cloths to be sold. Proceeds
will go into the emergency fund,
which has been named the Whitlock
Emergency Fund. Mrs. Whitlock’s
donation has enabled the Auxil
iary to feed the destitute mother of
a chronically ill patient for a whole
month, to provide a special diabetic
diet for three days to another patient,
and to give shoes and clothing to a
needy child. Sincere thanks to I\Irs.
Whitlock for making it possible for
tJie Auxiliary to give such wonderful
service. We expect this fund to grow
through other generous givers.
