Movie Fundraiser Nets Over $1000 for Scholarships
On November 15th at the Michigan Theatre, Harriet A Myer BPW raised enough to provide 2 scholarships with the showing of "The Help" movie. This creative group of women used a 50/50 raffle, homemade chocolate pie auctions, screen sponsorships, and ticket sales to net over $1000.
Thanks to a very kind and generous audience, some bidding over $30 to take home a pie. Suzanne McCloskey paid it forward, the former scholarship recipient participated heavily in the auction. Thanks Suzanne!
Thanks for a great time August 15h to socialize and experience a relaxing dinner (great food) on the deck. The weather was terrific and the company exceptional.

At the July 25 monthly meeting, Debra McEldowney MSN, RN, SANE-A was our guest speaker, brought to us by Kate Keersmaeker. SANE, Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner, is a special practice brought to the health field. Not all communities have these critically trained nurses and Jackson is certainly blessed with having Debra.
SANE nurses are registered and have completed specialized education and clinical preparation in the medical forensic care of the patient who has experienced sexual assault or abuse. Victims of sexual assault are most severely psychologically traumatized individuals a nurse will encounter. Victims are often re-traumatized upon entering the hospital if not cared for by a trained SANE nurse. Most will re-live the assault several times over explaining the crime to police, physicians and nurses. The role of the SANE nurse is the epitome of patient supports. She is help to preserve the dignity of the victim but collects evidence that links to the suspect.
