Friends of VMH Mum Sale


The Friends of Vernon Memorial Healthcare are hosting their annual Mum Sale now through September 20.  With twenty different varieties, there is a color for everyone! Pre-sale prices are just $16 per mum, and any left over the day-of are $20. To submit your order, print and complete the order form, then mail it with your check to the VMH Foundation (mailing details on the order form). Pickup will be September 20 outside the VMH Hospital from 7:00 am – 12:00 pm.




The mum sale has been a staple fundraiser for the Friends of VMH for many years, and proceeds support their scholarship program.  The scholarship program is designed to assist students who are pursuing careers in the healthcare industry.
