In Honor and Memory of Molly Schmeltzer
It is with sadness that I share the news of her passing on March 25th. Molly was a dedicated and compassionate perioperative nurse at Scripps Mercy Hospital.  She spent many years as an integral part of the Mercy Outreach Surgical Team, (MOST).  She participated in 47 outreach trips since 1990. She was known for her extraordinary care and compassion for both her patients and coworkers. Molly was a member of AORN San Diego County and past chapter President 2000-2001.
Molly will be missed.

Social Media Opportunity:
We are seeking a chapter member who is interested in an opportunity to work with our "social media" committee. This is a chance to "get your foot in the door" and may give you the experience to find a position in the rapidly developing field of Social Media. Please read more in our monthly newsletter and if you are interested contact Vickie Pierce.

Ways & Means Opportunity:
We could use a person with a special touch to help with the "ways and means" committee. The leadership is in place and we could benefit from some fresh new ideas. If you would like to help the team to make our chapter activities more profitable and enjoyable contact Vickie Pierce.

Old Cell Phone & Printer Ink Cartridges:
Please bring any of these items you have collected over the summer to the September meeting. This is a way for the Chapter to add $$$ to the piggy bank. Read about what you can do.
