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.
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

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 you.
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 delicious dinner.
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.
