Mercy Medical Center – New Hampton will celebrate our 100th anniversary in 2017! We are excited to host a celebration to pay tribute to our history, staff, physicians, patients, and the community as a whole. We are looking for detail oriented people to serve on the planning committee for the 100th year celebration, which will take place in the summer of 2017. I feel we will need people for the following sub-teams:
· History/Story Telling
· Food/Beverage (sorry, no alcohol)
· Logistics (location, sound, electricity, rain location, tents, tables, etc.)
· Children's Activities (inflatables, Teddy Bear/Doll doctor station?)
· Catholic Heritage/Faith
· Merchandise/commemorative memorabilia
The first meeting will be held on Wednesday, April 27 at 4:00 p.m. in Mercy's Health Education Center. Please invite others to attend the meeting as many hands make for light work. You can anticipate monthly 1 hour meetings with the large group. As much work as possible will be done through email or sub-team work. If you are interested in being on the committee, please let me know which sub-team you prefer to serve on. As always, thank you for your ongoing support of Mercy!

Because We Care...
It’s something we do when we lose someone. Pre-planning can help you and your family with remembering when. After you have created the event that will celebrate your life, your funeral director will give you an estimate of the expenses involved and can discuss prefunding options available. Prefunding can help relieve the financial burden on those close to you. Knowing that your funeral plans have been selected and prefunded allows you and your loved ones to spend more time remembering when. Please note that under Iowa Funeral Code all pre-planned and prefunded funeral contracts are fully transferable to any funeral home.
