Fall Newsletter 2021
From the Desk of Julie
Dear Friend,

Welcome to our Fall Newsletter!
Julie ground breaking
Nearly one year ago, we broke ground on an important building expansion and renovation project. It has been quite a journey, working through construction and a pandemic, but I continue to be so impressed by the commitment and passion of our team. I am also grateful for our kind and caring donors and community members who generously support our work. Thanks to you, our future is bright!

This newsletter is full of exciting updates, including the announcement of our 2020 and 2021 Cornerstone Awards. Join me in congratulating these wonderful people!

Happy Fall!

Julie Reynolds, RN, MS, President/CEO

Grant Currie Makes Prayer Shawls for CVNA
Grant is a Senior at St. John's Prep in Danvers, MA, and we recently learned that Grant has been quietly making No-Sew Prayer Shawls for Cornerstone VNA. He has set a goal to make ONE prayer shawl per week until his graduation. He has currently made 15 blankets with a goal of making 55 in total.

We are so honored to be the recipient of Grant's prayer shawls! His shawls will surely make a difference in the lives of our Hospice patients.

This young man is going places! Thank you, Grant!

If you're interested in supporting Cornerstone VNA, we'd love to hear from you. Contact Ann Vennard at 603-994-6941.
