KEMPSEY District hospital is getting ready for its second 'All Staff' reunion at the South West Rocks Country Club on February 15 next year.
Staff member Trudy planned the last one and hopes her second stint at organizing a reunion are just as successful.
"Our reunion in 2016 was absolutely fabulous; we had 230 guests from Victoria, NSW and Queensland, many had not seen each other in years," she said.
"It was the biggest chatterbox night I've ever seen; they could not stop talking to each other, 110 guests came to breakfast the following day as well, which was again an enjoyable time.
"Everyone who has worked at the hospital, past and present is welcome to attend; this includes our wonderful, hardworking pink ladies and kiosk staff, some of whom have been in the role for 40 years."
South West Rocks Country Club is supplying the music, and there is a three-course meal available at the cost of $36 a head.
"Get together any time after lunch, but the meal is 6 pm to 11 pm, last time there was so much food leftover it wasn't even funny, the caterers did a fantastic job," Trudy said.
"We also want everyone to write down and bring along your funniest story from working at Kempsey District Hospital to share with everyone; then we will put them all in our memory book.
Last time we had a massive spread of ages, the youngest was 30, and the oldest guest nurse was 94, it was a wonderful occasion, and everyone had a thoroughly enjoyable time, many friendships were rekindled and good memories shared by all.
"Let's make this event another amazing time."
