     CCHS Brown Bag Lunch Program October 23rd at Noon

    Our Brown Bag Lunch Program this month will not be on the usual Third-Thursday, but on the fourth Thursday, October 23rd, and will be “A Real Shot in the Arm” as we feature the reminiscences of several Retired Nurses, including Dale Yoe, Jane Manning, and others. They’ll recount their years of working at both the Calvert County Hospital in the early ’70s and in the new Calvert Memorial Hospital after it was opened in 1978.  Find out what went on in the ER, the OR, and hear about their experiences with the DRs they assisted in their careers.  This will our last Brown Bag Lunch program in 2014, so join us at noon, at Linden.
