Snowline Hospice to hold yearly meeting tomorrow

Snowline Hospice will hold its annual meeting at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Marshall Hospital Educational Annex in the Security Pacific Bank Building in Placerville. The evening is scheduled for two phases.

The first portion of the meeting will be conducted by Dr. Frank D. Irwin, board president, and is open to the public. Executive director Abigail Gessler will give the annual report.

The second portion will be the regular meeting of the board of directors.

“Understanding the hospice movement is vitally important to those who are terminally ill and to all members of the team that help them recapture the precious quality of life,” Gessler said.

The hospice movement has linked and grown across the country, branching out to El Dorado County in 1979, when the first group was formed by Dr. Doug Tustin, among other charter members.

A Festive Celebration

The celebration at Shingle Springs, was an honor to the people of the West Side, who were nearly all there. It was a good second to that of Placerville, and considering the difference in population, fully up to it. The procession from the Planter’s House to Colverdale grove, where the literary exercises and sports occurred, was a splendid array of floats and decorated vehicles that looked like a garden of roses on wheels. Headed by the El Dorado band and led by Marshal Bosquit and aids, it wheeled  into the shady grove in grand style.
