Pink Ladies board meeting
CROWLEY - At a recent Pink Ladies board meeting the ladies presented a check for $10,418 to the hospital administrator, Terry Osbourne. The hospital used this money to purchase five computer module work stations.
The board members, led by President Mary Briley, held a meeting in the conference room. Paige K. Thibodeaux, a graduate of Notre Dame, sent a very nice note of appreciation for the Scholarship money she received from the Pink Ladies. Thibodeaux will attend ULL to major in Nursing. Sympathy cards were sent to Leora Amy and Thelma Istre for the loss of their sister. Get well cards were sent to Kitty Hensgens and Thelma Istre because of their recent illnesses. It was noted that Summerwood Nursing Home brought a basket of goodies for the Pink Ladies to show their appreciation for the work that they do.
Rose Primeaux sponsored Sandra Bellard and Leora Amy sponsored Cheryl Bradley as prospective Pink Ladies and this motion was passed.
Hospitality Chairman Leora Amy reported that she had made several calls about the next luncheon. So far, none of the places she contacted seem acceptable. She will check with a couple of other restaurants in town.
Nettie Romero reported on the gift shop that we had sales of over $3,000 last month which is very good for summertime and that the jewelry bags were selling well. Mrs. Briley said that the new trainees should be taught how to close out the gift shop register.
From now on to be an Honorary Pink Lady a member must have completed 15 years as a Pink Lady and have served a minimum of 2,500 hours of service. They will have also served on the board for six years or have been an officer for four years. The board voted to accept these new rules. All members will be issued a revised copy of these guidelines.
Georgie Petitjean’s motion that the Pink Ladies sponsor Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October was passed. Pink Ribbons and special mints will be given out again.
All members are asked to help recruit new people to join the Pink Ladies.
The next board meeting will be held on September 6, 2010 in the conference room of the hospital.
