Pledging will continue. We need to increase pledges from low to moderate income families. Generally a low to moderate income family of 2 would have income of no more than $38,000 a year and a low income family of 4 would have income of no more than $48,000 a year. A low to moderate single person would have income of less than $33,000. If you know people that might fall within those income levels, encourage them to pledge to try us.
On the organizational end, Mascoma Community Healthcare has adopted Articles of Association and Bylaws. The papers have been filed by local incorporators to register the corporation and trade name. By the end of April, the corporation had held two meetings and elected a Board of Directors, a Chairman of the Board and a Secretary. Dale Barney is Chairman of the Board and Alice Schori is Board Secretary. In addition, the board had selected the lot at the corner of Roberts Road and US Route 4 as the site of the new clinic.

There are seven committees working to implement the clinic. They include:
These committees have Board Members on them, but they are open to members of the community to join. Much of the work of these committees needs to be completed this summer. We need the help of anyone who is interested.
