Hospice News Update

With the coming of fall, many of our summer volunteers flee to warmer surrounds, but there are still nine year-around helpers who may be called when respite care is needed. If the need arises, please contact Joyce Runberg (2387), Pat Rowley (2514), or Lois Williams (2475.)

Through the generosity of Munson Hospice, and facilitated by Marilyn Achard (an Island Malloy), we have received two new electric hospital beds. We would like to give away the three older electric beds, which are currently at the Med Center; if you'd like one, call Pam at the BIRHC2275.

A special thanks for donations from Jim and Carol Myers of Beaver Island and Eleanor Mosbarger of Phoenix. Anyone who would like to donate to the Hospice can address their query to P.O. Box 191.

Last spring the Mulchers for Mary at Holy Cross Church planted two burning bushes at the entrance to the Memorial Garden behind the Church. These plantings are in memory of Diane Hetherington, and came from an anonymous donor. The red blaze they will display each fall will remind us of the colorful and unquenchable spirit of our dear, departed friend.
