A special member of the Saanich Peninsula Hospital Auxiliary was honoured last month.
On April 23, Margaret Tangye was honoured for her 40 years of membership and service with the Auxiliary.
Tangye, who was recovering from leg surgery at the time, was awarded with a certificate and flowers by members of the Auxiliary, including President Susan McLoughlin, Past-President Janie Scott, Public Relations Coordinator Enid Burns and Joan Marsh.
“For years, Margaret has provided splendid leadership and guidance as Parliamentarian for the Auxiliary and assumed the responsibility for constitutional revisions and updates and assuring that our mandates were fulfilled,” explained Burns.
“A dedicated and retired teacher, wife, parent and concerned citizen, she has contributed most generously her time and effort without thought of self.”
Tangye’s involvement with the Auxiliary began in 1974. She was born in Saskatchewan, attended university there and taught at the University of Saskatchewan for two years. Tangye eventually moved to B.C. and taught for many years and became involved with the Auxiliary.
