Mark your calendars! The 21st annual Taste of Carroll is set for Monday, April 27 in Carroll Hospital’s East Pavilion.
Thank you to all who supported A Season to Remember, our annual holiday event to benefit Carroll Hospice.
This year’s event raised more than $18,000 through ornament sales, the holiday auction and generous donations.
Carroll Hospice will remember fallen heroes with a luminaria lighting on Sunday, October 6.
On this day, luminaria—paper bags filled with tea lights—will be lined up outside of Dove House, Carroll Hospice’s inpatient facility, to honor individuals who have died who had served in our country’s military or were first responders.
“Our event was so moving last year that we wanted to include all of our community heroes to be honored and recognized,” says Kimberly Benson, Carroll Hospice’s volunteer coordinator. “This includes many of our patients who have passed as well as those who were taken in the line of duty to our country or community.”
The public is invited to attend the event and personalize a bag in honor of a loved one. The lighting will begin at 6 p.m. and a short service will take place at 7 p.m. at Dove House, 292 Stoner Avenue, Westminster.
For more information or to personalize a bag in honor of a loved one, please call 410-871-8000.
When there isn’t a lot of time and unexpected circumstances arise, cooperation and flexibility are key indicators of how well a team functions under pressure. Lorna Rice, Carroll Hospice social worker, and Art Monroe, Carroll Hospice chaplain, are a prime example of teamwork at its best. The duo was recently named team of the month for the comfort they provided during a patient’s final hours.
