Adventist church hosts memorial service today

Zonta Club awards grant to Brook Lane Services

The Zonta Club of Hagerstown has awarded a $50,000 challenge grant to Brook Lane Services for its Bridging the Gap building campaign.

The gift, given in honor of Zontian Louise Sutter, will match dollar for dollar each of the first $50,000 gifts and pledges received for the renovation and expansion of the center's inpatient unit.

Sutter, who died in 1999 at age 94, was a member of Zonta for nearly 50 years. During her term as president, she traveled nationally and internationally to Zonta activities. Sutter owned and operated a beauty salon on Potomac Avenue. At the time of her death, she bequeathed portions of her assets to the Zonta Club of Hagerstown, her church and several other local charities.

Brook Lane Health Services has launched a capital campaign to assist in the costs of renovating and expanding their inpatient hospital unit. The project will provide 42 individual hospital rooms for children, adolescents, adults and elder adults.

For more information about the project, call Kay E. Hoffman, CFFE at Brook Lane Health Services, at 301-733-0330, ext. 272.
