The Thrift Store gets a Face Lift
7/18/12: Laurali Noteman
The Kane County Hospital Auxiliary’s Thrift Store is getting a face lift. After a three month parley with the Planning and Zoning committee the Auxiliary was finally able to move forward with their exterior face lift. Rebecca Vandenberghe, the mural’s artist, has changed the original draft to exclude random renditions of petroglyphs. She will be including her depiction of our wonderful cloud filled blue sky to compliment her vermillion bluffs.
The Auxiliary would like to thank the Travel Council, for a gra nt which they received for the mural. They also wanted to extend a warm thank you to Hansen Stone Quarries for the use of the scaffolding for the project.
Our local Thrift Store, in tune with their corporate culture, has been offering tips to Panguitch and Page on setting up a thrift store and partners with them to share information and success paths. If they have an abundance of anything they often share it with the other stores.
Floyd Norskog, treasurer, reported on expenses and sales for the month of June. The Thrift Store’s sales totaled $11,600 for June bringing a total of $66,000 year to date. That is $16,000 increase over June of 2011. Floyd thought he would jab his constituents by challenging them to meet a goal of $100,000 in sales for 2012.
To a person the members present offered thanks and compliments to each other and to all of their patrons. The general consensus is without the public support they would not be successful. That is definitely a true sentiment, but without those selfless and dedicated volunteers and staff our Thrift Store wouldn’t be as successful.
Some of my favorite quotes come out of the Auxiliary meetings. They tell it like it is as they laugh and openly discuss work. This meetings quote has to be from Delain Judd. When the members were thanking “Kenny” for his hard work, “He is a little like me, a whole lot,” Delain laughed. They members especially wished to thank all of the gentlemen who help them out, they added Kirby, Floyd, Marvin, and Shane to their list.
Kane County Hospital would also like to say thanks. What an extraordinary group of individuals. You make a remarkable team.
