Pink Ladies purchase tractor for hospital’s maintenance department By Josie Sellers josie@coshoctoncountybeacon.com COSHOCTON – Th e Pink Ladies Auxiliary puts a lot of time and eff ort into fundraising projects so they can give back to the hospital. Th is year their eff orts allowed them to fully fund the purchase of a new tractor for the main- tenance staff at Coshocton Regional Medical Center. “In the fall we ask the hospital to give us a list of what we can put money toward and the tractor was number one on that list,” said Marilyn Fuller, president of the Pink Ladies. According to Jennifer Brenneman, human resources generalist, the New Holland tractor cost $17,795 and was purchased from Bakersville Garage. It has a snowplow on the front and spreader on the back for salt. “It came just in time for our last big snowfall,” Brenneman said. Th e maintenance staff was especially happy to see the tractor arrive. “When we get snow its all hands on deck, but this tractor will make that a lot easier,” said Michael Hawley, director of plant operations. “We will be able to be more effi cient and faster.” Maintenance Supervisor Dave Stone said the New Holland replaces a Kubota that was at least 20 years old. Fuller added that the Pink Ladies really appreciate the support they get for their fundraisers so they can make donations like this happen. “Without the community’s support or the employees we wouldn’t be able to do things like this,” she said. “Our goal is to be here to support the hospital. We are proud to be able to give as much as we did for the tractor.” Next up for the Pink Ladies Auxiliary will be a book sale in April and their annual geranium sale in May.
