We decided on Mary’s Shelter as our philanthropic interest this fall. A list of supplies needed was emailed to the group and will be sent again by Karen. A who attend the October meeting were asked to bring a supply, or a gift card to Walmart or Target. Our VCNP Region will also pitch in money depending how many donations we have. If the turnout for supplies is poor, we can hold over the collection until November.
Piper updated the group on the availability of the Fick Center for our May 5, 2017 local conference. The Hospitality Center of Mary Washington Hospital Center books the Fick Center, so an application for use of the space was filled out and sent to them. We heard back that we can use the space as long as a MWHC function does not want to use the same space at that time. The Hospitality department will let us know by October or November if we are superceded.
Flowers will be sent by the group for Jessica, who works at Minute Clinic and sustained a traumatic injury this summer. She is now home and progressing well.
