Major Gift to Creutzburg Scholarship
Many of you know that 2014 will mark the 10th anniversary of our merger with Hopkins as consortium members of the Alumni Association. To date, the Freda Creutzburg Scholarship has an endowed value of approximately $250,000. My goal is to mark our 10th anniversary in a way that shows our continued commitment to nursing education by adding another major gift to the scholarship that bears our name. Thus far, I have received over $15,000 toward the goal. That amount will generously increase to $25,000 when the $10,000 gift from MedStar is added. Church Hospital was once owned by MedStar, which recognizes and appreciates the efforts of our alumni by continuing to help the scholarship grow and assist others in pursuing their dreams of becoming a nurse. Please consider making a gift to the 2014 goal. At that time, the unveiling of the plaque in the School of Nursing will be held. To be sure, this will be a very special day!
Save the Date: Alumni Weekend!
The weekend of Sept. 26-28 will be full of exciting events for Homecoming. Penny Haviland, ’63, who attended the Alumni Tea, is working to get the CHH 50-year alums on board to be at Homecoming so that we may honor them in traditional “Golden” style. Look for your save-the-date card and invitation in the mail soon. Please call or email me if you have any questions, need transportation, etc.
As I prepare to celebrate my 40th, I am really looking forward to seeing a big turnout from the class of ’73.
Fourth Annual Tea a Success
On May 8, as we all celebrated Nurses Week, 30 alumni from Hopkins and Church Home enjoyed the fourth-annual Alumni Tea in the Carpenter Room. This event will continue to be held during Nurses Week each year. Look in future issues of Johns Hopkins Nursing magazine for information on the Alumni Teas.
