|PCHS Foundation has board positions available|
Two Perkins County Health Services Foundation Board of Directors appointments will be made by the Perkins County Commissioners Jan. 19.
These positions will be for three years (starting Feb. 1, 2010) and are available to persons living in Districts I and II.
District I includes the eastern part of the county; District II the middle part.
Currently holding these positions are (District I) Lonnie Tvrdik of Elsie and (District II) Leon Regier of Grant.
Tvrdik is completing his second term, but he will not be continuing on the Board since he is leaving this area.
Regier is completing his third consecutive term so is not eligible for another appointment due to term limitation.
Any person from one of these districts is eligible for appointment.
Another board position that is expiring is the one held by Brenda Kiolbasa. She had been appointed three years ago by the PCHS Board to the PCHS Foundation Board as one of their two representatives to the foundation board. Her reappointment, or replacement, will be decided by the PCHS Board in its December meeting.
Other Board members whose terms will continue are Michele Cutler (Elsie), Diana Maupin (Venango), and from Grant: Nita McGreer, Roxie Lampmann, Bob Cummings, and Dan Wallin.
Anyone living in Districts I or II who is interested in being appointed to the board should contact any of the county commissioners or county clerk before Jan. 12.
Current commissioners are Leon Pankonin, James Deaver and Sid Colson.
More information about these positions may be obtained by calling any board member or foundation administrator, Ron Patrick (352-7285).
The foundation, organized in 1987, has steadily grown to a current net worth of more than $1.05 million. Its main purpose is to support local health services, including the hospital, convalescent home, assisted living, home health, and medical loans and scholarships.
Traditionally, PCHSF has granted over $150,000 annually to these entities.
