Palomar Pomerado Health Foundation Installed Officers


At the Annual Meeting of the Palomar Pomerado Health Foundation last week new officers were installed:  Dr. Doug Moir, Chairman; Robert Crouch, Vice Chairman; Karen Black, Secretary; and Lori Holt Pfeiler, Treasurer.  Several new Board Members were acknowledged also.  Mary Evert was honored for her past year as Chairman, where the Foundation has seen significant increases in their fund raising efforts on behalf of the Health System. 


In addition, Anamaria Repetti, Executive Director, gave a summary of the many accomplishments of the Foundation for the year, and Michael Covert, President and CEO of the Palomar Pomerado Health System, gave a summary of the long term goals and plans of the System for health care in the communities of Inland North County. 


A very inspiring speech was given by Helen Monroe about "Shaping the Future with Philanthropy" where she described the word philanthropy as the "voluntary action for the public good."  Helen is CEO of the Endowment Development Institute.  


Redwood Elderlink Hosted Chamber Mixer


When Redwood Elderlink hosts an event they do it up right.  Last week's Chamber Mixer was no exception!  They have a great facility with lots of room for people to mingle, entertainment, and the food is superb.  This year it included a two-tiered stand with extra large strawberries and, of course, a large bowl of chocolate sauce and whipped cream.  If you were on a diet, that diet went out the window when you saw those delicacies.  All in all, it was a very successful evening with many door prizes, fun and food.
