Thelma Beal

Outgoing Board President Thelma Beal has brought loads of energy, enthusiasm, leadership and just plain kindness to our organization during her tenure on our Board.

Thelma has taken on entire projects including coordinating the High Card for Hospice portion of the Hospice Regatta of Maine and spearheading many of the new opportunities brought to this year’s very successful Hospice Regatta.

Through Thelma’s efforts, we moved forward with “spiffing up” our basement equipment-sharing space, making it much nicer for those who come in search of walkers, wheelchairs or other needed equipment for their loved ones. As the Chair of our House and Grounds Committee, Thelma also lent her careful eye to other projects needed for the upkeep of our property.

Thelma has led our Nominating and By-laws Committee as well as having served on the Finance Committee - she’s a regular “Jill of all Trades.”

In addition to these many contributions to our organization, the richness of Thelma’s gifts as a very active member of the Ellsworth community was celebrated with a good-natured roasting at our Annual Meeting.

Very best wishes to our own “Ms. Ellsworth.”
