FARMINGTON — The Franklin Memorial Hospital Auxiliary is hosting its annual community tea from 3 to 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 11, in the Bass Room at Franklin Memorial Hospital. The tea, free and open to the public, will include information sharing, refreshments and live entertainment.

The tea will begin with refreshments of sandwiches, fresh strawberries and three kinds of loose leaf tea: Marco Polo, Earl Gray and Darjeeling, while background piano music is performed by Dr. David Dixon.

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 Monday, June 2, by calling Betty Mitchell at 897-2212. Those attending should look for parking directional signs on the day of the event.

The FMH Auxiliary hosts monthly activities and special events that raise thousands of dollars annually to support technology and programs at Franklin Memorial Hospital. Most recently, the Auxiliary’s annual gifts have supported the expansion of the healing garden on the hospital campus, as well as renovations in the emergency department.
