Geneva General Remembrance Tree
1:00 AM - 1:00 AM
All friends of Finger Lakes Health are invited to participate in the Geneva General Hospital Auxiliary’s Pinecone Remembrance Tree.
Those interested have the opportunity to make a donation of $10 for a gold-colored "Remembrance Cone" to be hung on the tree in the main lobby of Geneva General. A message will be placed on each cone in celebration of a special occasion or person, in honor of a special person, or in memory of a loved one. A commemorative registry album will be on display to acknowledge the special events and people that have been remembered.
To participate, please send $10 per cone to General Hospital Auxiliary, Geneva GeneralHospital, 196 North Street, Geneva, NY14456. If desired, an acknowledgement will be sent. For more information, call (315) 787-4065.
The Geneva General Hospital Auxiliary supports the Hospital and the LivingCenters in Geneva through donations of time and funds.
To Honor Our Veterans Exhibit

Free and open to the public every Thursday through Saturday from 1pm to 4pm, the Phelps Arts Center, a local non-profit, is dedicated to promoting the visual and performing artists of the region through exhibits, concerts and education.
Our current exhibit, "To Honor Our Veterans", will be on display from November 7th through December 28th. During this time, we will be honoring our veterans by exhibiting their artwork in our Main Gallery at 15 Church Street, Phelps, NY.
On exhibit are several pieces from the paintbrush, carving tool, needle point or charcoal stick from several of our men and women who have given their time and energy to Serve Our Country! We bring this to you with a deep appreciation and respect to all those that have been a part of the Military Service!

Bone Marrow Donor Drive
4:00 PM - 6:00 PM
My 14-year-old nephew Ben, whom I dearly love, is in need of a Bone Marrow Transplant. Unlike 95% of children with his diagnosis, he did not go into remission after the initial first month of chemotherapy.
An international search for a Bone Marrow Donor has not turned up a match for Ben (he has no siblings), and his options are narrowing quickly.
If you are between the ages of 18-44,* a free and simple cheek swab can determine if you are a match, either for Ben or for another child/person in a similar situation. 75% of people who are determined to be a match give through an fairly simple, outpatient process called apheresis, similar to donating platelets at the Red Cross. Your body replenishes the bone marrow you donated, so nothing is lost. Over 3,000 people die per year, waiting for matches.
This is truly a gift of life. If you can, please join us for an EMERGENCY DRIVE at the Jewish Community Center, Gesher entrance, 1200 Edgewood Ave., THIS WEDNESDAY from 4-6 pm.
For more information, please contact me or check out the Be The Match website at http://bethematch.org/
My heartfelt thanks to the JCC, especially Program Director Joy Getnick, for organizing this Emergency Drive. Please help us spread the word.
* donors aged 18-44 are swabbed on-site for free; folks aged 45-60 can donate, but are asked to sign up online and pay $100 to help Be The Match defray the cost of testing.
