Mother-Daughter Nurses Will Highlight Legacy Luncheon
HICKSVILLE, OH— The Community Memorial Hospital (CMH) Foundation will hold its 3rd Annual Legacy Luncheon on Saturday, November 3, 2012, in the Community Rooms at the hospital. Appetizers will be served at 12:30 p.m. and lunch will begin at 1:00 p.m. Tickets for the Legacy Luncheon are $20 each and seating is limited. If you would like to attend the Legacy Luncheon, please contact a table sponsor or call Carol Weidenhamer at 419-542-5690.
The featured speakers will be Mary Slattery, RN, and Katy (Slattery) Maistros, RN. Both mother and daughter are Registered Nurses, and will discuss changes in nursing over the years. Mary worked at CMH for 35 years, primarily in Obstetrics, but also in Med-Surg. Katy was a CMH scholarship recipient and worked at the hospital for several years when she was just out of nursing school. She will also discuss her time serving in the Peace Corps and her current training to become a certified nurse-midwife.
Other activities taking place will include the CMH Auxiliary’s Festival of Trees and a silent auction.
All proceeds from the Legacy Luncheon support the Foundation’s scholarship program. Last year, the Foundation awarded four $1,500 scholarships to local individuals pursuing a career in the medical field.
