“Learn for Life” Program This event is our gift to you. Come and enjoy dessert and coffee while you discuss a current health care topic with an SCBH healthcare professional. This evening event is usually held in the fall. Watch this website or the SCBH calendar in the paper for information. Past topics discussed were: osteoporosis, colon cancer, diabetes, and cholesterol.
Hospital Decorating Every spring, auxiliary members get down and dirty outside and plant annuals and perennials around the hospital grounds. We decorate the hospital interior all seasons.
17th Annual Summer Golf Event On Sunday, August 9, the Auxiliary will host its 17th Annual Golf Classic at the Benson Golf Course. Besides an afternoon of golf, there is more fun in the evening. We’ll have an awards dinner for everyone after the fun in the sun. Plus, the Auxiliary works all year collecting do dozens of prizes to give away at the evening event. Sign up early, this event is usually sold out early. To sign up call the hospital at 320-843-4232.
