BRUNSWICK — The Mid Coast Hospital Auxiliary Annual Membership drive is underway with the goal of renewing current members, as well as seeking new individuals to join.

The Auxiliary leads a number of fundraising activities throughout the year that provide financial resources to the hospital. Since the Mid Coast Hospital Auxiliary was founded in 2001, it has contributed more than $1.5 million toward hospital projects and the health career scholarship fund.

Annual fundraising events include the Mid Coast Hospital Gift Shop (open year-round), the Sweets for the Sweet Valentine Bake Sale in February, the Used Book Sale in April, the Grand & Glorious Yard Sale in May, and the Holiday Bazaar, Wreath, and Bake Sale in December. Funds are also raised through annual dues ($15 per individual) and monetary gifts.

“We greatly appreciate the support of all our members and look forward to another successful year,” said Joan Shea of the Mid Coast Hospital Auxiliary Membership Committee. “We have a lot of fun together. And it’s all for a good cause.”

Membership is open year-round. Anyone interested in joining can visit for more information and an online application.
