Junior Board Welcomes New President, Pays Tribute to Past President
The Junior Auxiliary Board of Peninsula Regional Medical Center installed its new slate of officers for 2012-2013, and gave a heartfelt thanks to outgoing President Susan Peacock on Wednesday, April 4, at Asbury United Methodist Church.
The Junior Board’s new president, Cynthia Holloway brings a unique perspective to the role — her mother-in-law, Marianna Holloway, was also a president of the Junior Board, and helped to make it the successful volunteer group that it is today. Cynthia said she was eager to continue this heritage forward into the future, keeping the traditions of the 89-year-old group while moving forward with new innovations, including those started by her predecessor, Susan Peacock.
During her term Peacock oversaw the start of several new and highly successful fundraisers, including the Culinary Adventure Tour and the Uniform Sale. These events helped raise significant funds toward important projects at Peninsula Regional Medical Center.
Officers installed on Wednesday, April 4 were: President Cynthia Holloway; President-Elect Mary Rhodes; First Vice-President – Shop Chair Theresa Rose; Second Vice-President – Vice Shop Chair Betsy Hanulak; Recording Secretary Susan Robinson; Corresponding Secretary Sandy Jones; Treasurer Mary Lou Zimmer; and Immediate Past President Susan Peacock. Marlene Davenport, Irene Phillips and Carol Alex will serve as board members.
The Junior Auxiliary Board at PRMC was established in 1924, and to date has donated nearly $8 million to the Medical Center in support of programs, technology and expansion. Its volunteers provide hand-knitted hats for babies at the Medical Center, and fleece caps for cancer patients. They also provide post-surgical “hugging pillows” for heart, lung abdominal and breast surgery patients, and gifts for the first baby of the year. Junior Board membership is open to everyone in the community. For information on joining, call Faye Holloway, Volunteer Coordinator, at 410-543-7262.
