Karen McCarthy's Story
"I enjoy taking a leadership role..."
I have served on the Emerson Hospital Auxiliary Board as Vice President of Membership since 2003 and as a corporator at Emerson Hospital since 2007. As Membership Chair, I have many and varied responsibilities from organizing membership coffees and luncheons, to marketing the Auxiliary cookbook, Revolutionary Recipes. I like to help out on whatever activity where support is needed. I enjoy taking a leadership role and helping on all of the major events sponsored by the Auxiliary—including the Annual Run-Walk, the Reflections in Bloom event, the Pops Concert, the Christmas Cookies event and many others.
I originally joined the Auxiliary to become more involved in the community and quickly found that the gratification I received was far greater than anything I gave. I have learned so much and met so many wonderful people. Our paths may never have otherwise crossed, and I will always treasure these relationships. Anyone interested in joining the Auxiliary can contact me at 978-371-2133.
