The National Active and Retired Federal Employees Chapter 1050 held their June meeting with more than 40 in attendance. Hardin County Circuit Court Clerk Loretta Crady and Trust for Life Executive Director Shelly Heavrin provided a program on organ donor awareness to inform the membership about the need to consider organ donation and how the local Kentucky emphasis came to be. By agreeing to donate $1 to the trust, Kentucky has raised $7 million toward program expenses and to assist organ recipients. Only 100 patients in KY received life changing organs last year; however many patients died before a donor could be located. Heavrin answered several questions in response to her informational program. The program is supported by Kosair Charities, and more information is available by calling toll free 1-866-945-5433 or by searching on line at www.trustforlife.orgor by e-mailing email@example.com. Persons interested in registering may go online.
Chapter president Kay Bennett introduced new members Virginia Paulson and Bill Harper, and she encouraged the membership to invite their NARFE eligible friends to the monthly meetings. She received reports from the Membership, Legislature, PAC, Alzheimer’s, Publicity, Sunshine, Social, and Service Center Committees. Constitution and Bylaws Committee chair Willie Lee presented suggested revisions, and received input from the members attending. After further revision, he will present the membership the draft of revisions for an acceptance vote at the July meeting.
Bennett announced that member Dolores Pfeiffer received recognition for 15 thousand volunteer hours at Hardin Memorial Hospital. Member Peggy Johnson received recognition for recruiting new members to NARFE. Members Lilo Figueroa and Dick Grindall were raffle and door prize winners.
