Linda Cooley Receives Bruce & Jeanette Travis Award

Linda Cooley with Award

On November 4th at Port Townsend’s First Presbyterian Church, ECHHO celebrated its 15th Anniversary. Attending the event were members of each of our supporting churches, volunteers, board members, office staff and others who have generously supported ECHHO over the years. ECHHO proudly presented the 1st Bruce & Jeannette Travis Award to Ms. Linda Cooley. Ms. Cooley has served ECHHO with complete devotion and commitment since 2006 as a volunteer, Board member and eventually as office manager. Her efforts have been instrumental in nurturing and inspiring the growth of ECHHO to its present record setting level of service to the community. Although Ms. Cooley will be relocating to the Seattle area soon and no longer directly involved with ECHHO’s day-today operations, her hard work for ECHHO’s success will never be forgotten and she will always hold a special place in our hearts.

ECHHO Thanks the Following Churches, Organizations and Individuals for Very Generous Financial Gifts.
Cornucopia First Presbyterian Church, Brinnon Community Church, Lutheran Church of the Redeemer, Calvary Community Church, Jefferson General Hospital, Olympic Area Agency on Aging, Peninsula Cancer Center, Edith Grobe Foundation, SOS Printing, Seven Cedars Casino, Edensaw Community Cancer Foundation and the many volunteers and care receivers too numerous to mention. We wish you all a happy Thanksgiving!
