Christmas Fair Many crafters participate in this two-day event, held on the
first Thursday and Friday after Thanksgiving. Helpers and donations are
always needed for Booths for Baked Goods, Christmas Plants, and White
Elephants. Many volunteers are needed to play an active role in this
delightful fund-raiser. Opportunities for participation include helping
with the White Elephant tables by donating, pricing, and selling items
as well as cleaning up. The bake table always appreciates donations of
homemade baked goods and assistance with selling. There can never be too
many goodies to sell. Solicitation and donations of Raffle prizes in
coordination with the Raffle Chairmen and selling of Raffle tickets
helps tremendously. For more information contact the Women’s Board
Administrative Assistant at 610-645-2139.
Tree of Life A large evergreen tree on the Hospital grounds is decorated
with hundreds of lights and lighted for the public to enjoy from early
December to early January. Each light represents a gift of love from a
donor to honor or remember a loved one, or to express appreciation for
something special. The lighting ceremony is held on the first Monday
after Thanksgiving. All donors are encouraged to attend this magic
moment. In addition to the lighted tree, a corresponding tree decorated
with Moravian stars is placed in the Hospital lobby with a Memorial Book
identifying the donors and those remembered. Volunteers are welcome to
participate in this meaningful event.
Spring Fair Each spring, as at the Christmas Fair, many crafters
participate in this two-day event usually held in early May. Helpers and
donations are always needed for Booths for Baked Goods, Spring Plants
and the White Elephant table. Many volunteers are needed to play an
active role in this major fund-raiser. For several years departments
have graciously organized and donated theme baskets to be raffled. Think
about what fun and interesting theme your department can put together.
There is always great anticipation with regard to the finished product.
An hour or so of your time to sell tickets and or clean-up at the end of
the day is also appreciated.
Jewelry Sale In February, August and late December before the Holidays each
year a sale of fine jewelry is held in the Hospital Lobby. This is a
great opportunity to purchase a beautiful gift for someone, maybe even
Invitational The golf outing is a tradition of more than two decades. This
event entertains approximately 120 golfers with a buffet lunch and 18
holes of golf. Many volunteers assist throughout the day. Following the
golf tournament, all are invited to enjoy cocktails and a delicious
dinner. Corporations sponsor many of the participants, helping to make
the Golf Invitational successful. If you are a golfer, get your friends
together and participate. If you are not a golfer, volunteer to be a
hostess or make it a lovely evening out and join the group for a
Used Book Sale Twice a year, in January and June, there is an opportunity to
purchase books at bargain prices for winter and summer reading. It also
provides a chance to clean out your libraries and donate gently used
books. Children’s books and cook books sell especially well. Tables in
the Cafeteria are filled with a very wide selection of titles, both hard
back and paperbacks. Volunteers to assist with set-up, sales, breakdown
and clean-up are gratefully accepted.
