“We enjoy celebrating the community and this is one way we can do that,” said Gina Dusel, Auxiliary Department of Wyoming President. “This is our fourth year donating a gift basket to the first-born baby on Veterans Day. We look forward to this every year.”

Due to strict Covid-19 policies that the hospital has implemented to keep patients and staff safe, Dusel delivered the package to the Labor and Delivery Unit and presented their donation to the unit’s Director, Megan Jacobson. Dusel also provided a picture of the American Legion Archie Hay Post family that donated and helped to assemble the generous package.
