At 3:15 p.m. Kamilla Hall, outgoing Auxiliary president, will greet attendees; followed by Dr. Jay Naliboff, Franklin Health medical director, speaking on the Choosing Wisely initiative—how physicians and patients can ensure that the right health care is delivered at the right time.
The tea will conclude with entertainment by the Narrow Gauge String Band performing down home country favorites.
“This is an afternoon of friendship, information, refreshments, and entertainment,” said Jill Gray, Auxiliary staff liaison. “Anyone with an interest is welcome to attend and group and individual table reservations are available.”
An RSVP and table reservations are requested by June 2 by calling Betty Mitchell at 897-2212. Those attending should look for parking directional signs on the day of the event.
