Fab 50 (Updates by Terry O.)

Tucson Nurse's Week (Updates by Terry O.)

Conference is May 5th and costs $90 includes luncheon. Galla is May 6th and costs $75. Let Terry know if you plan on going and if you want to sit at the table. (10 people per table). Room rates are discounted for Th, F, S @ $99.72 per night and are normally $250.


Diaper Bank (Updates by Karen K.)

Market to hospice nurses to donate, we will pick them up. Currently competing for Angel Charity Donation which is a LARGE sum of funds that could pay off new building allowing ALL proceeds to support diapers/briefs etc. Top 4 of choices and will know in a few weeks if charity is won. Bobby Rich was the MC to promote and has had some trouble and is no longer the MC. Need a new Radio/TV personality, please suggest if you know anyone.


Ostomy Support Group (Updates by Kathleen H.)

Meets every 4th Sunday at 1400. Need more volunteers. Presenter for accessories needed for May 28th. Located at the El Dorado Cafeteria.


Website (Updates by Carol R.)

Review need to change website companies. Go Daddy is slightly more than other options but it is very time consuming to move all of the information to a new website. All of our old meeting minutes and other documents are stored there. Motion to stay with GoDaddy by Julie G. and Carol R. PASSED.
