It is a privilege to serve this community hospital with the tradition of excellence as an Auxiliary sponsored shop.

The Little Shop was founded in 1937, and has supported the projects of the Auxiliary throughout their 74 year existence. It began with $1.00 donations from 100 members. The shop has evolved from food, sundries and gift sales to become a unique gift shop.
