Franciscan Sisters serving on HFM boardAs part of its 115th anniversary week, Holy Family Memorial  refreshed memories of a timeline of events on one of the walls in its corridors. Franciscan Sisters involved on its board of directors and General Administration took the time to review people, places and significant dates.

Later this week, among a variety of activities there is a Blessing of Pets event from 10 a.m. to noon on Oct. 4 in the parking lot off of Meadow Lane just northwest of the medical center, 2300 Western Ave. The founding of Holy Family Memorial was chosen close to the feast of St. Francis on October 4.
