December. 13, the day of their annual holiday feast, the MMC Auxilians made a presentation to the Auxilian of the year. The recipient was Viola King.
The full holiday meal is provided every year by MMC in recognition of the service of its Auxilians.
Madison Medical Center’s administrative staff served the Auxilians their lunch.
“They did it all we didn’t have to lift a finger,” Auxilian Joyce Lindow’s said in appreciation following last week’s complete meal and dessert.
Lindow said the group’s current fundraiser is a jewelry sale and was going well prior to closing time Dec. 16.
