WMH Auxiliary

Love Lites 

The Love Lites project originated in 1991 as an Auxiliary fund raising project

but also as a service to the community in providing a way to remember or

honor loved ones during the Christmas holiday season. By the symbolic

lighting of the lights on the trees outdoors at Wayne Memorial Hospital for

our community to see every day throughout the season, we are reminded of

the love and caring of family and friends.

The outdoor ceremony consists of a member of the clergy blessing the

Memory Book and features appropriate Christmas music performed by

members of St. Tikhon’s choir and the Honesdale High School chorus. The

short ceremony is followed by light refreshments in the hospital cafeteria. The

Memory Book containing the names of the loved ones and the donors will be

displayed in the hospital lobby from the day the trees are lit until the end of

the first week in January and are posted below.

The new trees in front of the hospital are lit this year.

WMH AUXILIARY’s  ANNUAL CONCERT – – We hope to be back in 2021!


The Concert Committee is thrilled to announce the 7th Annual Concert will be Jim Curry’s Tribute to John Denver.

It is a re-markable coincidence that Jim’s natural voice and looks are so similar to John Denver. In fact, it was Jim Curry who was selected for the off-camera singing voice in the TV movie “Take Me Home, the John Denver Story” after John’s untimely death. Jim has continued to deliver the popular songs of John Denver celebrating the natural beauty of the earth and positive messages of love and humanity. Think “Rocky Mountain High,” Annie’s Song,” Take Me Home Country Roads.” This is a concert you won’t want to miss!

The date is September 8, 2019 and the venue is the Woodloch Heritage Night Club. Doors open at 3 pm and the concert is 4-6 pm. Joan Buehl (570-226-9750) will again be the ticket master. Mark your calendars! Who doesn’t need some ‘Sunshine on my Shoulder’?

  •  The Auxiliary’s hospital-based gift shop has reopened for business in the new lobby of the new tower. The Gift Box is fully stocked with snacks, gift items including a large selection of baby items, flowers and miscellaneous items.  It’s also the place to get a hot cup of coffee
