  5. View this email in your browser Welcome to the Class of 2019! In February thirteen new volunteers received training to become BHH volunteers. The training involved three days of presentations covering all of the aspects of being a volunteer for Boquete Health and Hospice. The training was planned, organized and administrated by the training committee chair, Beverly Stearns. We welcome our new volunteers: Lesley Hughes, Joan Feuerstein, Linda Archer, Carmen Restrepo, Luis Botero, Evie Jones, Newman Jones, Valerie Strahl, Sherry Shirritt, Loesje Sherwood, Susan Peterson, Anne Maxwell and Leslie Sherling. March Match Making Event Our March monthly meeting was a match making event for the new members to sign up for the volunteer activities they are interested in joining. The team leaders described the opportunities for volunteering with each team. The event was a great success with over forty people participating. Members were able to learn about all of the teams and some signed on to participate in more than one team. One of our new teams is the Ambassador Team headed by Dave and Erin Ross. Watch for updates on the activities of this team. Working Together for a Healthier and Happier Boquete Boquete Health and Hospice has a close relationship with Fundacion Pro Integracion (Handicap Foundation). Recently Fundacion Pro Integracion shared a story about one of their regular clients finally getting a shower finished so she could bath comfortably; however, she still needed a shower bench to facilitate her showers. Boquete Health and Hospice jumped in to donate a shower bench to Janeth and her husband Edwardo (seen sitting on the bath bench). This puts an exclamation mark on a long process to provide Janeth with some basic comforts so necessary for a handicapped individual. Our two organizations share numerous volunteers who help to meet many of the healthcare needs within the Panamanian community in Boquete. We are heartened by what we can accomplish together through cooperation, mutual volunteer support and, when a need is identified, financial support. One of the key leaders at Fundacion Pro Integration, Chuck High, helps out with technical advice and new member training at Boquete Health and Hospice. Also pictured is Sally Zigmond, who is a key member of our equipment services team at BHH and also is a regular, Saturday worker at the Handicap Foundation. Boquete Health and Hospice Foundation and Fundacion Pro Integracion, are proudly working together for a healthier and happier Boquete.
