Guild Happenings

LOGO whiteby: Penny Lauer, Board/Guild Member

The mission of the Guild for NHC is to serve as ambassadors for the Neighborhood Health Clinic and to raise funds to support patient services.  We would also like add that we serve as direct volunteers to the Clinic.  This season we expanded our Member Chalkboard to include requests for volunteers from the Clinic’s volunteer coordinator.  A list of volunteer opportunities at the Clinic is also now included in our new membership packets.

Additionally, a new Guild committee has been established to provide dinners to Clinic volunteers during regular Clinic hours.   Our year-round resident members have filled all of the open evenings for the summer.

The week of May 6th to May 12th was a special time at the Neighborhood Health Clinic. Although there are no bands, no fireworks and no speeches, we very quietly celebrate National Nurses Week. In doing so, our reflections at times focus on “what if” there were no nurses at the Clinic. The ready answer is there would be no Clinic. “What if” there was no Nancy Lascheid, R.N. The answer would be the same.

In a whimsical moment during Nurses Week, some have even imagined a parade of famous nurses marching past our doors. Undoubtedly, it would be led by the most famous nurse of medical history, Florence Nightingale. Ms. Nightingale would be carrying her lantern, which she used while ministering to wounded British soldiers in her … Read more...
