On Friday, July 19th St. Mary’s Hospital hosted a retirement party for Mary Watson, RN.  Mary had worked for SMH for over 48 years. Many co-workers; both past and present, cardiac rehab patients, family and friends came out to help Mary celebrate.  Many stories were shared including the one about her and Sr. Agnes Reichlin moving patients from the old hospital to the new one back in 1965; they didn’t have an ambulance so they moved the patients in a hearse.

On June 15 Boy Scout Troop 638 went on an 8-mile hike along the Dworshak Reservoir Trail. We met other hikers on the trail, people camping and many boaters on the lake. We couldn’t have asked for a better day to explore along the trail. At our 4 mile marker we took a break for lunch and visited with some people camping and their friendly dog. The boys got to go swimming for a little while. It might have been hot outside but the water was very cold. Pictured are Tate Berdoy, Carson Schmidt, Kevin Tillinghast, Hunter Chaffee, Jared Coppernoll, Blaze Berdoy and Anthony Karel. Adults on the hike, not pictured, were Brad Berdoy, Aleta Coppernoll and Shari Chaffee. Looking forward to the boys’ next adventure! Photo by Shari Chaffee. Click on the photo for a larger view.
