Members of the Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Azle Auxiliary gathered Tuesday to recognize those among them who have dedicated countless hours to furthering the operation of the hospital in the community.
Hospital President Bob Ellzey updated the auxiliary with some numbers.
In 2012, Ellzey said, members of the auxiliary, chaplains, and Attic Reruns volunteers worked 7,392 hours. If those hours had been paid at minimum wage, it would have cost $53,592, Ellzey said.
The auxiliary also contributed $1,500 to the Levis and Lace reception held at the home of Jack and Janet Stevens and a whopping $100,000 toward the remodel of the lobby, relocation of Outpatient Registration Services and clinical managers.
“Folks, that’s a whole lot of popcorn and 50-cent clothes sold!” he laughed.
Receiving certificates were Martha Lange with 56 hours and Cathy Weltha with 58 hours.
Receiving certificates as well as volunteer pins were Aida Hargrove with 133 hours; Sarah Knapp with 377 hours; Shirley Newton with 191 hours; and Brenda Scarbro with 189 hours.
