Thank you to everyone who supported the Burden Challenge for Carroll Hospice! The outpouring of generosity from the community has been outstanding. The Burden Challenge raised $42,185 to support the expansion of the Dove House.
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 is pleased to welcome four new members to the Board of Trustees.
Barbara Harden recently retired as manager of the executive office and community affairs at Penguin Random House. She served as a Dove House volunteer for several years and, for the past three years, she has dedicated her time to Taste of Carroll. Harden and her husband John live in Westminster and have two grown sons.
Dave Kile retired as co-founder of Ease Technologies, Inc. He and his wife Lizanne live in Mt. Airy and have two grown children.
Ann Patterson works as a health services administrator at Broadmead, Inc.
Now retired, Robert Weinreich previously worked in several high level positions at the U.S. Department of Defense.
All began their posts on July 1 and will serve a three-year term.
The year was 1908. It was the year the first New Year’s Eve ball dropped in New York City’s Times Square, Henry Ford’s company built the first Model T and Oklahoma became the 46th state in the Union. And it was the year Genevieve Duffy was born.
Genevieve, of Westminster, passed away in June, weeks after her 111th birthday.
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.
Exciting news! Carroll Hospice is now able to provide hospice and bereavement services to residents in Pennsylvania. The Pennsylvania Department of Health granted Carroll Hospice license to serve patients in the entire state earlier this year, and Carroll Hospice will initially focus on serving those in Adams and York counties.
