Changing of the Guard at Wayne Memorial Hospital Auxiliary



(Honesdale, June 09, 2022)…New Auxiliary President Diane Popovich, RN, took the reins from outgoing president, Melissa Rickard, CRNP, DNP-BC.  Popovich, who thanked Rickard for her service, is now tasked with helping to lead the group out of the pandemic. One of the Auxiliary’s first new public events since 2020, a Garden Tour, takes place July 9th.

The Auxiliary also installed President-elect Joyce Malicky; Vice President Michelle Corrigan, RN; Secretary Tami Baker; Treasurer Diane Fox; and Assistant Treasurer Danielle Hedgelon.  All officers hold their positions for two years.

While it’s a been rough couple of years for many non-profit fundraising organizations such as the WMH Auxiliary, Auxiliary members say their thrift shops, the Other Shop One in Honesdale and the Other Shop Two in Hawley brought in enough income for the Auxiliary to continue to meet its commitment to the hospital’s Second Century Fund. The Auxiliary, which pledged $600,000 over six years, kicked off the campaign in early 2019 at its Mistletoe Ball.
