WINCHESTER — Each year, the Winchester Chapter of the Order of the Eastern Star chooses a project to support and raise funds for. This year, Worthy Matron Ila McElheran and Worthy Patron Blaine McElheran chose Winchester District Memorial Hospital – and we are very grateful.

On October 23, chapter members visited WDMH to present a cheque for $1,700 for the Cancer Care Fund. The money was raised through a series of draws, bake sales, and officer and member donations.

Since 1999, this generous Chapter has donated $12,250 in total. “It was a pleasure to have this group back at WDMH again. They have been such loyal donors over the years,” notes Kristen Casselman, the WDMH Foundation’s Managing Director. “Our patients are very fortunate to have donors like them supporting cancer care here at WDMH. My thanks to Ila and Blaine for choosing WDMH as their project this year.”
