Minutes from last meeting

We discussed the upcoming 29th Celebration of Life event on May 15th, 2016 .  The reception is at 1 PM and the dinner  at 1:45 PM.  We have asked staff to sell our raffle tickets and have asked the staff to purchase a table and our chairman, Jim Bullard, sent a letter to Dr. Alvarez asking to purchase an ad for the ad book.  Temple has always done this in the past.  We also had nominations for members to sit on Temple’s board.  There were no new nominations.  Temple president., Richard ford, is resigning due to health issues.  Laverne Clark temporarily  volunteered to be acting president until someone else fills those shoes.  Rich ford will remain as a Temple member and  general board member and will help advise Laverne and whoever accepts this position.  The vice presidency position remains open and all other Temple chapter board members were reelected.

Rich Ford was honored by the Performance Improvement Safety Committee at Temple for his 10 years of service on the committee by Dr. Herbert Cushing, chief medical officer and dr. Amy Goldberg, committee chair. This occurred at his final meeting in the group on March 8, 2016. Hope to see you all at the Celebration of Life event.  The next Temple chapter meeting will be announced at a later date.
