Annual Meeting

On June 2, 2014, guests including board members, hospital administration, past presidents and Auxilians once again gathered at the Stonehedge Inn and Spa in Tyngsboro for the Lowell General Hospital Auxiliary Annual Meeting. The meeting marked the end of another productive year for the Auxiliary.

After a wonderfully prepared lunch, Auxiliary President Mary Bennett conducted the business meeting. During the meeting, the slate of Auxiliary Officers and Board Members for 2014-2015 was passed and the minutes of the 2013 Auxiliary Annual Meeting were approved. This meeting was officially the last one as President for Mary Bennett as she ceremoniously passed the gavel into the capable hands of Carrie Meikle. Before her presidential duties were complete, outgoing President Mary Bennett, along with incoming President Carrie Meikle and Second Vice President Paula Leavitt presented a check for $125,000 to Norm Deschene, President and CEO of Circle Health and CEO of Lowell General Hospital. This was the sixth and final installment of the Auxiliary’s $750,000 Legacy Fund Pledge. This accomplishment certainly proves that great things can be achieved when committed volunteers work together for a common cause.

The Auxiliary couldn’t let the day pass without acknowledging CEO Norm Deschene’s 30 year anniversary at Lowell General Hospital. In appreciation of his dedication and service, the Auxiliary presented him with a commemorative plaque which will be displayed at the Urgent Care nurses’ station in the new Circle Health facility in Westford.
