And every gift matters. Did you know that 100 percent of your gift goes directly to resources that transform our community? Your gift is reaching out to create a healthier tomorrow for our neighbors. Just as a garden supports and enhances the quality of life for its surroundings, members of the Pauline Bryan Society provide the same nurturing support to the healing initiatives offered by Parrish Medical Center (PMC). The society is named in honor of Pauline Parrish Bryan. Because of her strong commitment to our community, Pauline Bryan served as the first board chairperson of the original hospital, which is now Parrish Medical Center. Through her initial vision, guidance and leadership, PMC continues its strong tradition of healthcare excellence. To recognize and honor the generosity of our Pauline Bryan Society members, Jess Parrish Medical Foundation (JPMF) hosted a Garden Party last spring. While being serenaded by local entertainers—Michael Foster, Carol Henn, Barbara Ziegler and The Broad Street Group—guests toured the three historic houses at Parrish Health Village West. The event was made possible by generous sponsorship from the Parrish Medical Center Auxiliary. Invitations will be mailed to members soon for the 2013 Garden Party. 54 S Pring 2 013 donate Foundation Focus Join Our Giving Society and Make a Difference Join the Pauline Bryan Society or renew your membership today.

They impressed upon me that regardless of the size of the gift, the giver’s intention—giving from the heart in a sacrificial way, like the widow in the Bible—was what mattered most. When you give your time, talent and treasure, without seeking recognition, the blessings you gain in return are priceless. That’s why the Pauline Bryan Society is so important. Mrs. Bryan sought only to improve her community, and used her personal and financial leadership to help build a hospital to serve friends and neighbors in North Brevard. She saw the need and responded. That inspires me. Giving to the Jess Parrish Medical Foundation improves, transforms and saves lives. Through the foundation, even someone like me can heal families, heal our community and make a difference.” —Suzanne Sparling, Titusville resident
