event highlighted with the unveiling of our Tribute Wall (pictured below) and Tribute Board.

Alumnae President's Letter
The Alumnae Association of the St. Luke’s Hospital School of Nursing
President’s Report 2011-2012
Dear Fellow Alumnae:
As anticipated, the business conducted by the Alumnae Association has been
minimal for this past year and a half as emphasis was placed on our final
dissolution. We met for an annual Memorial Service in October and held a
meeting of the membership during our Christmas Tea in December. At that time an
interim budget for January 1st– June 30, 2012, was approved which enabled us to
conduct business for through the first half of the year. Plans for Dissolution
have been slowed as we are finalizing our commitment for a Scholarship Fund in
Leslie County, Kentucky. In the interim, we did award $1500 scholarships to two
(2) students for their Nursing Education on the baccalaureate level.
We notified all members about the necessity to hold an Annual Meeting per By-Law
Requirements and an election of Officers and Directors was deemed necessary
because of the passage of time beyond what membership had agreed to in 2010. As
specified in our By-Laws, “Officers and Directors are granted permission to
conduct necessary Alumnae Association business while pursuing Dissolution of the
Organization.” Lee Carr ‘64 graciously accepted the nomination for President and
I filled the ballot for Vice-President; all other Officers and Directors agreed
to remain on the ballot. All of us thank you for your votes to continue working
on your behalf for the Association.
At the Annual Meeting a budget for the remainder of the year 2012 was presented
for approval which will enable us to conduct the business at hand, including
hiring outside professionals to assist in both legal and financial matters. We
are hoping that a specific timeline for dissolution can be established this
A few near term efforts underway:
1) Working with our legal counsel and the NYS Nurses Foundation we need to
create a “home” for the Benefit Trust so our Graduates will still have access to
2) Waiting is always difficult. We know that our efforts in Kentucky
will be well worth the wait and time. Our thanks to Judith Gantley-Hale for her
work on this project.
3) The Foundation will aid us to set-up a source for alumnae to get
4) The Association website (slhson.org) will need management and
5) Managing finances so we have money to pay bills, but distributing what
we can to ensure our legacy.
6) Filing with the Attorney General’s office will be the final large
undertaking. Keeping you informed has and always will be a priority.
Eventually, a newsletter with gossip of course will be put together. A final
vote will be necessary to complete the Dissolution Process (red-tape).
All in good time. Thank you for your patience.
Be well! Be happy! Be safe!
Joanne B. Vecchione ‘65
