QUARTERLY BULLETIN 5 1 FNS 80th Year Celebration Update it On Monday, June 13, 2005, the Frontier Nursing Service hosted a j reception to celebrate 80 years of service in the Grand Ballroom 1 of the Renaissance Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C. Ap- proximately 150 guests attended this wonderful event. Both old ] and new friends of the FNS were greeted. Jane Leigh Powell, 1 Chairman of the FNS Board of Governors opened the festivities T with an eloquent presentation of the early years of FNS and the legacy Mary Breckinridge started in 1925. Miss Powell also shared some of her personal experiences of her 50+ years of involve- j ment with the FNS and closed her address with our present day successes. The recently released FNS 80* Celebration DVD was then shown. This professionally produced DVD highlights the many facets of FNS and tells of how the vision of Mary Breckinridge continues today. 1 1 Mr. W.W. Hall, Jr., President & CEO of FNS, Inc., continued Miss Powells discourse on the healthy state of FNS and informed the large audience of our plans to focus on our hospital and five healthcare centers in the years ahead. Dr. Susan Stone, who had I just received the title of "Fellow" by the ACNM, spoke of the Q major accomplishment of the Frontier School of Midwifery and l Family Nursing for the past year with the full accreditation to offer a Masters of Science in Nursing degree. j Between Miss Powells heartfelt renditions of our past to Mrs. Kitty Ernsts wonderful stories, the event was a complete suc- cess. Support for the FNS was very strong from those who at- tended. The memory of Mary Breckinridge was acknowledged Q by the awarding of the 10,000* Certified Nurse Midwife certifi- cate to Miss Powell, Mr. Hall and Dr. Stone. Our presence was felt in Washington and we believe that this event will benefit the FNS for many years to come. - Michael Claussen, C0urier/ Development C00rdinat0r
