Wolf Point 100 Club Leaders Thankful For Area’s Support
After a successful 2022, the Wolf Point 100 Club will hold its 43rd annual meeting starting at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 29, at First Lutheran Church.
“We want to thank the community for continuing to support us,” club president Cindy Hanks said. “It’s so important to be able to provide for our medical facilities.”
The organization was founded in 1980 with the goal to assist in purchasing added medical equipment for Faith Home, Trinity Hospital, Listerud Rural Health Clinic, NEMHS Emergency Medical Services and the Wolf Point Pharmacy.
Current officers/directors include Hanks as president, James Johnson as vice president, Cathryn Wylie as recording secretary and Janece Houg as treasurer.
Directors include Dave Fyfe, Dennis Heser, Mertz Hoversland, Leni Loendorf, Dan Moudree, Thomas Olsen, Jim Patch and Irene Rathert.
Hanks noted that Shirley Zimmerman, who served as the 100 Club’s president for about 40 years, died during 2022.
“She was probably the heartbeat of the 100 Club and kept it going,” Hanks said.
Hanks added that Renee Worley, who moved out of the area about five years ago, served as secretary during the club’s growth and was vital to the success.
Each year, representatives from Faith Home, Trinity Hospital, Listerud Rural Health Clinic, Wolf Point Pharmacy and the NEMHS EMS compile a “wish list” of items that are needed.
Thanks to the generosity of the area, the club raised $20,053 during 2022. That amount is an increase of the $19,006 of 2021. The 100th member of the 100 Club for 2022 was Heidi Kent.
Fundraising efforts for 2023 are now underway. Membership tiers include $100 for bronze members, $250 for silver members, $500 for gold members and $1,000 for platinum members.
The club is planning its chair-ity and yard art auction for Stampede weekend.
Another way to donate is through Amazon, said Hanks. The 100 Club is a member of the AmazonSmile community.
