Guest Speakers
Past Pres. Joe Adrignola introduced Public Relations Dir. Jackie Bonafide and Young Family Program Dir. Kristen Awrich, Community Health & Hospice to the club. Kristen Awrich pointed out that the Shots for Tots program seems to be making a difference as the demand has slowed down to running it just once a month. Support services and young children programs tend to lose money and need outside support while home and hospice care pays for itself or even turns a profit. The more donations they receive inspires others to make their own contributions, such as the $25,000 from last year's Holiday TV Auction. Single parent families are on the rise and Belknap County. With Lakes Region General Hospital cutting back services, the demand for help will increase. Health & Hospice is looking into more fundraising based on memorial gifts, bequests, and planned giving.
