Biographical history

The Sherbrooke Hospital Ladies' Auxiliary (SHLA) began their activities on September 20th, 1894, well before the official opening of the Sherbrooke Hospital. Their main objective was to foster, assist, promote, encourage, maintain, and contribute to worthy projects in the hospital. The SHLA had to fundraise to support their activities. Some of their fundraising activities were the Sherbrooke Fair, Annual Tea or Bridge, Jam Shower, Annual Dance (formerly named Linen Ball) and the House and Garden Tour. To operate, the SHLA had both active and associate members, officers and an executive committee. The SHLA is divided into several subcommittees. The Hospitality Shop opened in 1951 and became a main source of revenue. The Baby Birthday Club was introduced the same year to improve the Maternity Ward. The In Memoriam Fund, which commenced during the 1950s, contributed to special needs of the Hospital. The Scholarship and Bursary Fund encouraged and assisted the undergraduate nurses financially and organized activities for them. The SHLA also had two affiliated groups: the Lennoxville Wing and the Carry-On-Club.
