outstanding service she has given to the guild for 23 years. Dodee
Packard, tea chairwoman, was introduced and applauded.
President Mahoney presented Patricia Modrzejewski, executive
director of Providence Health System Foundation, with a $240,000
donation toward the guild’s pledge for a High Dose Brachytherapy
Device for Radiation Oncology. The donation represents funds raised
by the guild from its Gift Gallery and Thrift Shop and its
Fall-Spring Events for the year June 2002 through May.
Angie Scholl, the guild’s poet laureate, installed the new
executive board. They are President McArdle, First Vice President

Recording Secretary Jerry Beth Delauney, Corresponding Secretary
Phyllis Raduenz, Fall Event Director Janice Khoury, Spring Event
Director Carolynn Finnegan, Special Event Director Betty McMaster and

Each received a hat especially decorated with her particular field
of expertise, all done with humorous commentary. Outgoing President
Donna Mahoney presented McArdle with the president’s gavel and the
key to the office.
McArdle then welcomed everyone and thanked them for their support.
Photographs were taken of the new board and refreshments were served
at the conclusion of the formal meeting.
