The Hamilton County Hospital Auxiliary is hosting its Election Day Luncheon on Tuesday at Asbury United Methodist Church from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
The cost is $6 per person with hot casseroles, salads, rolls and a beverage served. Tickets are available at the hospital gift shop or at the door.
Items from the gift shop will be on display and for sale at the luncheon. Auxiliary dues for 2013 may be paid at this time. Hamilton County Public Health nurses will be on hand to administer flu shots at the luncheon.
Co-chairs for the Auxiliary Election Day Luncheon, Mary Ann Erickson and Cheryl Schneider, are pictured with a stair evacuation chair, a much safer method of transporting patients down a flight of stairs, especially in tight quarters.

In addition, the Auxiliary awards $3,000 in annual scholarships to students choosing to study in the health care field.
Proceeds from the Election Day Luncheon are used to purchase equipment and support the medical needs at Van Diest Medical Center. Thrivent Financial for Lutherans to match up to $400.
