Hospital Fund Kick-Off Set; $40,000 Received Former Lakola Man Passes In Minnesota More than 300 volunteer workers in the St. Ann Hospital Fund Campaign will attend a kick-off dinner, which will mark the official beginning of the solicitations for subscriptions to the hospital improvement fund at 7 p.m.Sept. 14 in Garrigan High School gymnasium. General Campaign Chairman Harry L. Greenberg, announced Friday that more than $40,000 had been received in the initial report of advance gifts. The second report meeting of the advance gifts is scheduled for Sept. 12. The workers at the kick-off meeting will receive final instructions for making their appeal for subscriptions to the $200,000 hospital improvement fund. The following morning they will begin making their calls. Campaign leaders have pointed out that the card of intention each person will be asked to fill out is not a promissory note or a legal pledge. They have emphasized, however, that the amounts indicated on the cards will allow the hospital authorities and lay advisory committee members to properly plan the improvement and modernization program. All subscriptions and monies received are audited by Chester R. Schoby and turned over to the campaign treasurer, John D. Cash. The funds are being kept in a separate bank account and are to be used exclusively for hospital improvement. Assisting the hospital authorities in the implementation of the improvement program, will be members of the medical staff and a 12 or 15 man advisory board who will represent all areas, professions and faiths of the people served by St. Ann. The advisory board will counsel with hospital authorities regularly and will receive regular monthly financial statements on the hospital operation. The applications of fourosteo- pathic physicians to admit and treat patients in St. Ann Hospital will be submitted to the medical staff at the regular staff meeting Sept. 19. The medical staff credentials committee voted to recommend that the staff approve the applications following a meeting Aug. 22, but the by-laws of the hospital require that final approval be made at the regular monthly meeting of the medical staff. Ted Chrischilles, Paul Seeley, Joseph Besch, Clarence Bormann and Frank Reding, solicitation chairmen for the various area volunteer organizations, report their organizations are complete and that it is hoped solicitations can be completed within three or four days of the kick-off meeting. Members of the campaign cabinet have issued an appeal for everyone to receive the workers cordially. It was pointed out that the workers who will be calling on their neighbors and friends have given two-fold -they will have already made their own personal subscription to the fund and they are giving their time and energy to organization work and making calls.
