In recognition of the volunteers who share their time and talents to support patients, families and the Zachary community, Lane Regional Medical Center on April 22 hosted its annual Auxiliary Appreciation breakfast.

The Lane Auxiliary has been in existence since 1960, providing volunteer service and financial support to the hospital.

Last year, the auxiliary provided more than 8,000 hours of volunteer service to the hospital and donated $20,000 to the Lane Foundation, Delores Sutton, Lane marketing coordinator, said.

Lane volunteer opportunities are available by calling the hospital gift shop at (225) 658-4309.
