The San Marino Area Chapter of National Charity League held a general Patroness meeting last week in Huntington Memorial Hospital’s Braun Auditorium. President Ann Boutin introduced the guest speaker, her mother Rary Simmons, who also served as the president of the San Marino Area NCL Chapter in the 1970s. Simmons shared stories and interesting details on what NCL was like when she was a member and Boutin was a Ticktocker. As a member emeritus of the Huntington Hospital Board, Simmons also thanked members for their work at the hospital. Other meeting business included approving the slate of officers for the 2017-18 year, and the new Presentation Tea and Debutante chairs revealed the theme for the upcoming tea and ball year — “Embrace Your Destiny.” Following the general meeting, members met with their respective grade levels to discuss business.
