Local Red Cross Chapter Elects New Board Members, Officers

Rosemary Heath, of Taunton, was recently elected as one of two new board members for the Cape, Islands and Southeastern Massachusetts chapter of the American Red Cross.

HYANNIS – The Cape, Islands and Southeastern Massachusetts chapter of the American Red Cross elected its officers and two new board members at its recent annual meeting.

Lisa Maiden will chair the board and Ken McGuire will serve as 1st vice-chair. Paul Robillard will serve as 2nd vice-chair and Peter Screnci was elected clerk.

The Vice President of Human Resources for Cape Air Susie Silva and Rosemary Heath, of Taunton, were the new members elected to the board.

Heath has supported the organization in many ways since her husband was stabbed and killed while trying to save a pregnant waitress at a Taunton restaurant in 2016.

She is also the co-founder of the George A. Heath Superhero Scholarship Award Fund at the Greater New Bedford Vocational Technical High School.

The meeting also recognized community partners and volunteers.

The Red Cross recognized the 102d Intelligence Wing, Otis Air Station, Joint Base Cape Cod, and their Commander, Col. Virginia Doonan with the Community Service Award for the work the wing has done not only for the Red Cross but for our community at large.

The Wing continues to host Red Cross Blood Drives, nominate Heroes for the annual Heroes Breakfast, support any and all events the Cape, Islands & SE MA chapter puts on and also supplies our volunteer forces with board members, disaster services volunteers and other volunteer positions.

The Red Cross also recognized The Bilezikian Family Foundation with the Community Leadership Award for their philanthropic investment in the American Red Cross over the years.

From annual grants for the chapter’s work locally, to donations at our annual Heroes Breakfast to all the support they give to numerous non-profits in our communities, the Bilezikians have helped make our communities, safer, stronger and more connected. Jeffrey Bilezikian accepted the award for his family.

The Cape, Islands and Southeast Massachusetts Chapter serves a population of more than 1,273,000 people in the 15 towns of Barnstable County, the islands of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket and Bristol and Plymouth counties.
