We honored two dynamic women at the Fundraising event on September 21, 2019. Each of them have passed but not without leaving a lasting legacy. Family members for each woman was in attendance to receive the plaques.
Mamie invested her heart and many resources into Adopt A Nursing Home Patient. She was a participant in the vision and constantly looked for ways to brighten the day of a nursing home patient. She served as the first Secretary on the Board until she departed in 2018 and lives on in our hearts and mission.
Joyce, while in the nursing home, contributed her experience as a Community Outreach Instructor, Writer and Advocate in the early days of forming the organization. We lost her in January of this year but will keep alive her zeal and involvement in the lives of nursing home residents
We also gave a Certificate of Appreciation to Gwen Starks for investing early in the vision of the organization by visiting and allowing her picture to be on the cover of our brochure with Joyce Bates.
