The Naval Hospital Lemoore is celebrating its 50th anniversary of service and dedication to Naval Air Station Lemoore. Throughout the years, the base, and the hospital have gone through a wide variety of changes and restructuring. Right now, the organization is known as Naval Health Clinic Lemoore.
Within NHC Lemoore is an association of long term civilian personnel dedicated to the hospital, our military community, and since 2012 they have also been dedicated to the base’s Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society (NMCRS).
In the fall of 2011, Stela Rodriguez, President of the Civilian Club at the time, envisioned taking the club in a different direction, to enhance the club’s "team spirit" and commitment to NHC Lemoore, a decision that demonstrates the civilian staff is an integral part of the command and our base as one-team. The NHC Lemoore Civilian Club motto is "Sailors come and go, but Civilians are here to stay"… this has changed over the years to "We Can and We Will… be one with NHC Lemoore!”
The club’s events give back a majority of all fundraising monies to worthwhile causes and events within the command and to the community, one of them being NMCRS. In 2012, the club voted to combine its St. Patrick's Day bake sale with the NMCRS annual fund drive and to give half the proceeds from the bake sale to NMCRS. This evolved into an annual tradition for the NHC Lemoore Civilian Club.
Since this year is the command's 50th anniversary, and in honor of this auspicious occasion, Civilian Club membership has chosen to donate all proceeds raised from this year's bake sale to NMCRS. The bake sale, held on March 16 raised $300 in the sale of baked goods donated by members of the Civilian Club. These funds were donated to NMCRS to assist and continue their own support and assistance to the military service members and eligible family members throughout our community.
As is tradition, NMCRS wishes to say Bravo Zulu to the NHC Civilian Club for a job very well done. We appreciate your efforts and your continued support.
