Membership Committee Aims to Add New Members

Peggy DeZinno, chair of the membership committee, is working with the committee members to develop new and exciting events to build the Auxiliary membership. Peggy, who retired from a 41-year nursing career at YNHH that began in the OB/Gyn department in 1971, fully understands the hospital’s mission and is very determined to encourage others to join the Auxiliary and help support the hospital’s patient care programs. A member of the Board of Managers for the past 15 years, Peggy agreed to serve as the membership chair in 2016 with a goal to significantly increase membership. To date, two events (free for Auxiliary members) have been planned for 2017: a wine tasting that was held on April 20 and a musical performance scheduled for June 6. Members are strongly encouraged to bring friends/ family to events such as these to learn about how the Auxiliary supports the hospital. If you are interested in joining the Auxiliary, please call the Auxiliary office at 203-688-5717.
