The Northbranch-Humbird Rod and Gun Club have a long history of giving to organizations in need. For several years, the hospice program at Black River Memorial Hospital has been a recipient of their generosity. Club member Ray Walker donated a gun for a raffle and fifty percent of the proceeds were donated in memory of his wife, Lorikay Walker. Lorikay was deeply involved with the gun club and was cared for by BRMH’s Hospice team. BRMH Homecare-Hospice Director Dena Graff stated, “We are so grateful for this $1,300 donation that will be placed into Kathy’s Fund. In the past year, Kathy’s fund was able to provide last wishes and unmet needs such as providing a hearing device for a patient so he could better hear his family and a Christmas tree and gifts for a family in need.” Other services provided through Kathy’s Fund included haircuts in the home, anniversary and birthday gifts and a complete holiday meal for a family.
