FARMINGTON — The Franklin Memorial Hospital Auxiliary recently held its annual meeting.

Les Gatchell, Auxiliary president, presented Gerald Cayer, Franklin Memorial Hospital executive vice president, with a gift of $10,000 to provide needed services for children. Cayer explained that the money would go toward two services: first, to provide the technology and infrastructure needed to offer child psychiatry services in the pediatrics’ medical practice via telemedicine; and second, to establish a series of support groups for children and their caregivers affected by domestic violence — the first of its kind in Franklin County.

Jill Gray, FMH community relations manager and staff liaison to the auxiliary, installed the following officers for the coming year: Kamilla Hall, president; Dawn Girardin, first vice president; Jean Rand, second vice president; Lois Smith, secretary; Priscilla Smith, treasurer; Betty Levesque, assistant treasurer.

Anyone interested in joining the Auxiliary can get a membership form by contacting Gray at 779-2555.
