Class Notes for Alumni of the Church Home and Hospital School of Nursing

As with everything else in this changing economy, the space allotted within this wonderful magazine for “Church Notes” has been downsized. That’s okay, because we can still be kept up to date with the information I receive—just in a briefer format.

Homecoming 2009
Save the dates of September 25-26, 2009 for another fabulous Homecoming.   Susan Riddleberger ’73 and I serve on the committee, and we are working hard to make this another memorable weekend. Let’s break our 2008 record of 68 CHH alumni in attendance!

The Class of 1959 will celebrate its 50th reunion at Homecoming in September. If you plan to attend (and you know you must!), contact your former Class President, Joann Hollinger Hersh ’59 at 717-762-5234, hersh@innernet.net, or 13200 Old Mill Road, Waynesboro, PA 17268.

The class of 1969 is planning a dinner at Liberatore’s restaurant in Timonium on September 19. Contact Barbara Zelenka Spink ’69 for more details atbzspink@comcast.net.

And the Girl in the CHH Cap is…
Within a day of the spring 2009 issue being delivered, I was contacted by three alums who reported that this mystery nurse in the CHH cap is none other than Katherine “Kitty” Blackwell Pyne ’60.

Church Home & Hospital Unit to be Dedicated at Good Samaritan
A new unit, dedicated to Church Home & Hospital, will open in the O’Neil Building at Good Samaritan Hospital this fall under the management of Director Catherine Micklewright Rossetti ’71.
