                 Message from our President
         “The uncertainties of the present always give way to the
            enchanted possibilities of the future.” ~Kirkland
Dear Alliance Members,
Happy New Year! Yes, it is already 2010! Each day, month, and year seems to pass quicker
than the last. Many of our members have graciously donated their time, talent, and
resources to accomplish common goals of the MCMSA, especially during the holidays.
Our International Dinner committee, led by Linda Allen and Shellie Herman, has been
diligently working on all of the details to ensure a successful event.
The International Dinner is our largest fundraiser of the year. Its success is a direct
correlation of the attendance and participation of our membership. We look forward to
your support on Saturday, February 20.
Invitations to the International Dinner will be mailed soon. We need you to attend, invite
others, and perhaps bring guests.
Donations are being accepted for the auctions we have at the dinner. It is an ideal
                                  opportunity for you to acquire that perfect gift for
                                  yourself or someone special. If you have an item or
                                  service to donate, please contact Lauri Pierce.

                                        Sincerely,

                                                       Sharlene K. Parish

                                   MCMSA Holiday Fundraiser
Through MCMSA's affiliation with the AMA Foundation, medical awareness is promoted in the fields of medical
education, public health and research. The Annual MCMSA Holiday Fundraiser was such a success; we were able to
donate a total of $4,860 to the AMA Medical Scholarship Fund, the MCMSA Health Careers Scholarship Fund, and
the MCMSA General Operating Fund. We would like to thank the following who made this possible:

The Youth Service Group received a warm “thank you” from Shelterhouse in October for their
children’s Welcome Bags and delivery of donated basic necessity items and toys. In December,
the Adopt-A-Family project made a difference in the lives of three families when gifts of
donations from 21 members were delivered. Taking up the challenge of service to the community,
these young people are establishing themselves as the caring adults of tomorrow they will
become. ~Michaele Bartlett
