Our Annual May Luncheon is a time when we recognize our members and their many individual and collective accomplishments within The Service League of Greenville. There was much to celebrate for the 2017-2018 year as our outgoing President, Annelle West, presided over the final meeting of her tenure and a delicious meal at Rock Springs.
We announced the establishment of the SERVICE LEAGUE OF GREENVILLE scholarship — an endowment for a medical or nursing student in the Brody School of Medicine. With Mark Notestine, President, ECU Medical and Health Sciences Foundation President and Jeff McPherson, Director of Development, ECU Medical and Health Sciences Foundation on hand to accept the “big” endowment check for $200,000.
We welcomed twelve new members into our ranks — (in alphabetical order) Jean Askew, Beth Beasley, Eleanor Broderick, Linda Byrd, Mary Lou Cherry, Cynthia Cox, Arlene Ferren, Cyndra Gasperini, Donna La geese, Laurie Maloney, Judy Plymale, and Lorie Wagner — who entertained us with a hilarious skit:
We added five new Honorary Members in appreciation of their many years (45 – 68) of service and continued enthusiasm and participation in the league: Lorriane Brody (64), Martha Coffman (60), Betty Lou Howard (69), Esterre Lautares (57), Janet McGlohon (45). Pictured below: Past President Annelle West with Honorary Members Betty Lou Howard, Janet McGlohon, and Lorriane Brody.
We recognized outstanding members with our highest awards — Peggy Christopher received the Agnes Wilkerson Award; Brenda Philips, the President’s Tray; and Donna Moore, the Ormond Service Cup.
We set the wheels of change in motion by installing and welcoming our new Service League of Greenville President, Ann Taylor; 1st VP, Danette Pugh; and 2nd VP, Wendy Farrior.
And last, but not least — To each and every member of the SERVICE LEAGUE OF GREENVILLE:
Congratulations on a year of amazing accomplishments. And THANK YOU for all that you do. You are indeed wonder women!!
