Paoli Hospital Auxiliary

The HM Branch of the Paoli Hospital Auxiliary was established in the early 1990’s by a small group of women who lived in HM and from that time membership has grown to over 80 active and honorary members. Our members are leaders in volunteering, fundraising and enthusiastic support of Paoli Hospital, the Auxiliary and the Community. In addition to volunteering services at the hospital including the Gift Shop as well as the Palm Tree (Hospital Consignment Boutique), we sponsor fundraising activities such as a Bingo Night, Tree of Stars and HM Tree Lighting and HM Showcase of Homes.

We meet in the HM Community Center on the second Thursday of the month from September to June at 9:30 (no meetings January and February). Each meeting begins with a social gathering followed by a guest speaker/presentation followed by a business meeting.  There is a place for everyone in our Branch. For more information or to join contact Membership Chair, Marlene Vergillo or President, Judy Krischker (see HM directory for contact infomation)
