Newman Regional Health Volunteers Announce 2022 Executive Board Members

January 27, 2022

(Emporia, KS) — The Newman Regional Health Volunteers announced the installment of their 2022 Executive Board members during their annual business meeting on Monday, January 17, 2022.
Congratulations to the following officers serving a 2-year term on the Newman Regional Health Volunteers Executive Board.

  • Lynn Lang, President
  • Jan McClendon, Vice-President
  • Mary Tholen, Treasurer
  • Vickie Dinkel, Assistant Treasurer
  • Cindy Paul, Secretary
  • Immediate Past President, Carolyn Hossfeld

“Even though we began our year late when we returned in March due to COVID, we accomplished much in 2021,” said Carolyn Hossfeld, Immediate Past President. “We were able to remain in “good standing” with the State Auxiliary, and we will be receiving our Gold Award of Excellence at the District 1 meeting in April. The state of Newman Regional Health Volunteers is strong!”

2022 not only brings a group of new officers, but the Hospital Auxiliaries of Kansas (HAK) voted at their September 2021 business meeting to officially change their name to Hospital Volunteers of Kansas (HVK). Though not required, Newman Regional Health’s Auxiliary chose to follow suit and voted in October 2021 to change the name of their organization to Newman Regional Health Volunteers.

With the change to the organization’s name, rebranding for the Newman Regional Health Volunteers has included a revised logo. The new logo symbolizes giving hearts and willing hands.

“The heart of a volunteer is never measured in size, but by the dedication to make a difference in the lives of others,” said Lynn Lang, President. “Our volunteers continue to show there is nothing stronger than the heart of a volunteer. I am honored to serve as the President of Newman Regional Health Volunteers. We look forward to working with everyone in 2022!”
