Last week, the women’s ensemble I sing with had the honor of performing for a group of women and men who deserve all of our appreciation — the Redwood Memorial Hospital Auxiliary. (Once known as the “Pink Ladies” they changed their name in 1982 to include male volunteers. Nice move, ladies!) Celebrating fifty years of service, these generous, hardworking people donate their time and skills in support of our over-worked healthcare professionals. changed My thanks to you and to others throughout the nation who support our hospitals through much needed volunteerism.
