Moves event from Monday to Sept. 23 due to ongoing work to recover from flood

The Morris Hospital Auxiliary has postponed its annual Golf Outing and Bridge/Euchre Tournament scheduled for Monday, May 13, at the Morris Country Club.

A new date, Monday, September 23, 2013 has been set.

“We feel that our energy and focus needs to remain on the progress we are making on cleanup and restoration on the lower level of the hospital as a result of the April 18 flood, while also being considerate of the recent damages and losses experienced by so many in our community,” said Hannah Wehrle, development officer for the Morris Hospital Auxiliary & Foundation.

The event schedule will remain the same. Golf registration and lunch will be served from 11 a.m. to noon. At noon, golfers will head out on the links for 18 holes of golf.

Bridge and Euchre tournaments will begin at 2 p.m. in the clubhouse.

All participants, as well as guests from the community, are invited to a buffet-style pig roast dinner at 5 p.m. The dinner program will include a brief awards reception, as well as raffle drawings.

All proceeds will benefit the Morris Hospital LifeLine and Patient Transportation programs.

Patient Transportation and Lifeline both provide vital services to the communities served by Morris Hospital. The Patient Transportation Service offers complimentary transportation to and from healthcare appointments, having provided more than 17,000 rides last year alone. 

Lifeline® is an emergency response system with over 520 local subscribers that provides instant access to emergency assistance and peace-of-mind for individuals who live alone.

To make reservations for golf, cards, or dinner, call Hannah Wehrle, Development Officer, at 815-942-2932, ext 7021. Reservations can also be made online at
