The St. Clement Knights of Columbus Hall was packed with people who came out to support Pike County Memorial Hospital at its annual banquet on Saturday, Nov. 17.

This year’s campaign is to renovate the Louisiana clinic in order to provide expanded and improved services to patients.

During the evening, Tami Schneidler, Clinics Director, spoke to the audience about what the clinic’s renovation will look like and expressed her appreciation to the community for supporting the hospital.

“The services that we offer do matter to our patients and our community. What you’re doing tonight truly will impact patient lives,” she said.

Members of the Pike County Memorial Hospital staff dressed up in 1920’s outfits in celebration of the hospital’s 90th birthday from back in 1928. The evening featured dinner and drinks, a silent and live auction, and entertainment by “The Gaslight Squares,” with 1920s music and dancing.
