Knights Engaging 3.0
“Some of them said WOW,” was part of the text that Dudley Wilcoxson, EMS liaison at Methodist Charlton Hospital, sent to our Dan Murphy, director of community activities, following the third 8157 meal delivery to the hospital staff in as many weeks on Thursday, April 23. This time, the council prepared about 150 cookout lunches that featured a hamburger, hot dog, bag of chips and Mike Fitzgerald’s signature ginger snaps for a host of Charlton personnel: emergency department staff, respiratory techs, radiology staffers, environmental services staff, plant operations technicians and education department staff.
Dan Murphy and James Smith, our director of church activities, again spearheaded the effort with Jack Ramsden arriving early to set up the grilling area behind Holy Spirit’s community center. They were joined by Efrain Ochoa, David Ybarra and Jeff Miller with Arthur Rodriguez pitching in following Father Eugene’s virtual Mass in the dining room. Mr. Wilcoxson was helped make the pickup by Kim Uebner, the hospital’s education coordinator, and Suzanne Hunt, a nurse in the emergency department. This followed a fish fry two weeks earlier and a delivery of breakfast tacos a week earlier.
Wilcoxson’s text also included:
“Thx for everything y’all hv done for us. It is greatly appreciated. The staffs eye got big when (you) showed up.”Dudley Wilcoxson, EMS liaison at Methodist Charlton Hospital
