On Monday, Oct. 3, representatives from Action Health Care – located at 566 Queen Street East in St. Marys – presented a cheque for $10,000 to the St. Marys Memorial Hospital Foundation as a part of its ongoing Someone I Know capital campaign. The donation was notable in that it pushed the foundation over $4.1 million on its march towards $5 million for the campaign.
