Leominster, MA – The HealthAlliance Hospital Guild and the North Central Massachusetts Chamber of Commerce (NCMCC) Executive Women’s Network (EWN) partnered together to host a Summer Social in the Reflections Garden on the Leominster Campus of UMass Memorial - HealthAlliance Hospital. The event was a collaborative effort to bring together women from the EWN and members of the HealthAlliance Hospital Guild to network and celebrate a positive and productive year. Donations of toiletries were collected for the Friends of Families in Transition (F.I.T) as the organization’s representative was the honored guest of the event. The HealthAlliance Hospital Guild also recognized Rosemary Hall as the “Jean Grady Volunteer of the Year recipient.”
“It is such a pleasure to partner not only with the HealthAlliance Hospital Guild but also to support our local women in need through the Friends of F.I.T. The Executive Women’s Network strives to not only educate our local businesswomen but also to support, encourage and strengthen the women of the North Central Mass community. Witnessing the dedication to one another across generations and organizations at the Social was not only heart-warming but empowering,” stated Maria McCaffrey, Event Coordinator of the North Central Massachusetts Chamber of Commerce.
“The HealthAlliance Hospital Guild was thrilled to co-host the Summer Social with the NCMCC. It was a lovely day in the garden for connecting with old friends and visiting with those you already knew, while playing networking bingo and indulging in delicious desserts! It was also our honor to formally recognize Rosemary Hall as the recipient of the Jean Grady Volunteer of the Year Award,” said HealthAlliance Hospital Guild President, Leslie Storrs.
“Thank you again for allowing F.I.T to be part of such a wonderful afternoon! It was so great to have the opportunity to meet and connect with an amazing group of woman. The donations collected will be so helpful in bringing some joy to the moms in the Leominster motel shelter. Every item was needed and is appreciated. I look forward to working with both the Guild and Chamber in the future,” stated Julie Stanwood, Friends of Families in Transition (F.I.T.)”
