Morning Light celebrated a remarkable year as the Board of Directors conducted its Annual Meeting December 4th. Executive Director CEO Tom Fodor and Chair Lee Ann Blue did the honors to salute three departing Members. Treasurer Tony Iacobucci was recognized for his work to simplify financial reporting and to raise funds, particularly through the Beach Ball and Rolling For Hope. Charles Williams capped 20 years of involvement with the organization and its former parent company, Visiting Nurse Service, providing his unique perspective to major decisions. Scott Ringold also left the Board after many active and successful years advocating for strategic new partnerships at the Abbie Hunt Bryce Home.

Fodor also announced that Morning Light received three grants for its Abbie Hunt Bryce Home. One $10,000 gift came from the Rotary Club of Indianapolis to provide awnings so hospice residents can enjoy the Home's newly renamed Rotary Memorial Garden. Additionally, a $10,000 Nicholas H. Noyes Jr. Memorial Foundation grant will help cover Home operational costs. Blackbaud Inc. continued a tradition by awarding a $2,000 gift to cover Home resident transportation cost. This is the fifth straight year Blackbaud has awarded Morning Light one of its Community Matters grants!
