    The Margaretville Hospital Auxilairy Annual Membership Drive

    Greetings friends and neighbors,
    As many of you may know, the Margaretville Hospital Auxilairy does an Annual Membership drive. This year I have agreed to act as chairperson for the Town of Halcott. The Auxiliary’s purpose is to support Margaretville Hospital and Mountainside Residential Care Center through advocacy and awareness. They do this through various Wellness Programs, blood drives, health fairs and many other hospital, nursing home and community activities throughout the year. Please join me in supporting this worthwhile cause. Membership is only $5.00 per person per year. I’ll be reaching out to many of you asking that you sign up. You can also contact me and I will sign you up.
    Sincere thanks, Lee Austin

    No sleigh ride today!

    Dear Friends:  Mother Nature has again foiled our attempts to enjoy a quiet winter wonderland with a Dr. Zhivago-type ride behind horses.  The sleigh ride has been postponed (again!) to a day when the temperature is not in the minus numbers and the wind isn’t howling.  We’ll keep you posted.
