St. Mary’s Hospital Long Term Care residents, average age of 90 years old, mounted a fundraiser the last two weeks at St. Mary’s Hospital to benefit some of the area’s National Guardsmen and women serving in Iraq.  In addition to holding a bake sale, they also decorated and placed cans for donations in strategic locations throughout the facility.  As a result of their weeklong efforts, and thanks to the generosity of St. Mary’s staff, patrons, and  visitors, the residents raised almost $500.  With this money they purchased many much needed goods such as  personal hygiene items , writing supplies, candy and gum, electronic hand held games, puzzles,  and   large variety of toys and personal items for the children whom the G.I.s mentor.  The residents are sending these to 8 soldiers who have  family members  employed  at the Clearwater Valley Hospital and Clinic and to 6 who have a  family member employed at St. Mary’s in Cottonwood.  The residents are very excited at the success of their efforts to help, and very grateful to all who contributed in so many ways to that success.  The residents are now organizing and  boxing  the gifts for mailing later  this week.  The residents in the photo left to right are:  Zelda Lamb, Leona Wassmuth, Nellie Larson, Bill Edwards, Elinore Munton, Herb Ahlers, Ken Kirby, and Activities Director, Leslie Lewis.
