A special meeting of the board of control of the Choctaw County Memorial hospital and an inspection tour of the to-be completed hospital will begin tonight at 7:30 p.m. at the hospital, according to Ralph Jenner, chairman of the board.
Representatives of every civic organization in the county have been invited to be present and chairman Jenner states that invitations have been mailed but that if some interested individual or group of club members have been overlooked in the mailing of these invitations, these individuals and groups are urged to be present. The inspection tour, Jenner points out, is open to the public in general.
At the hospital, John Shanrock, Jr., who is in charge of construction work there will conduct the group through the incomplete hospital, explaining how the hospital will look after it is completed.
The assembled group will then adjourn to the county court room in the court house for further discussion.
Among those expected to be present are representatives of the Choctaw County Chamber of Commerce, the Junior Chamber of Commerce, all Garden Clubs in Choctaw county, all American Legion posts, the Business and Professional Women, the Lions Clubs, the Hugo Rotary Club, the Frisco Club, the Kiamichi Soil Conservation District, the 4-H and FFA Blubs, all P.T.A. Units and the Choctaw County Medical Association.
"The more people who attend this inspection and the general discussion period, the more will understand how vital the hospital is to the county and how everyone must work together to make this project a success, stated chairman Jenner. "Everyone is urged to be present."
