WILMINGTON — The Health Alliance of Clinton County held its Annual Retreat on Thursday, Jan. 9 at ParkVue Grill.
President Kathy Havey welcomed returning board members Jennifer Hollon, Cindy Petrich, Nancy Bernard, Mary Camp, Ann Johnson, Susan Kocher, Linda Custis, Patti Cook, Staci Close, Betty Lou German, Frances Sharp, Pat Richardson, and Joann Chamberlin.
They then set into motion the Ball Wrap-Up Meeting of 2019 and discussed the overall outcome of their Annual Christmas Ball.
Proceeds from the ball reached an outstanding total of $23,361. A motion was made by Treasurer Pat Richardson to donate an even $25,000 to CPAP, and that motion passed with flying colors.
Discussions also included other organizations they would like to donate to. The members decided once again to donate $4,000 to the Scholarship Program, $3,000 to Heather’s Hope, and $3,000 to Hospice.
Other business included the swearing in of the newest Vice President Staci Close by Kathy Havey.
The meeting concluded and the gavel was officially passed to the newest President of Health Alliance of Clinton County, Cindy Petrich.
The group then focused its energy on the upcoming events of 2020. They discussed future events including the upcoming Health Fair on March 26 at Wilmington College, as well as future Book and Jewelry Sales to be held at Clinton Memorial hospital.
The January meeting will host Eleanor Harris from Harvest of Gold at the Cape May Campus Center on Jan. 28.
