Some half dozen charitable and religious institutions in Charles Town and Jefferson County have in the past, benefitted greatly from the Judson Dunaway Found. ation funds to the tune of some $40,000. Two of the most recent community projects to benefit from it financially were the Jeff- erson County Library and Civic Center and the Jefferson County Youth Center. Mr. Dunaway, who set up the Charitable Foundation some ten years ago, grew up in the Lee- town section of Jefferson County where he worked as a farm hand and clerked in his father's coun. try store. He is a brother of P. O. Dunaway of Charles Town. The half million dollar gift, together with federal funds avail- able under the Hill-Burton Act and other funds not specified as yet, will enable the Hospital Trustees to construct a pavilion adjacent to the existing structure. Preliminary indications reveal that a three-story facility housing 5'5 additional patient beds, togeth er with expanded ancillary ser- vices, will be provided in the new pavillion. Howard Mitchell, Dunaway trustee, stated "in considering a grant to the hospital, the trustees had in mind the croweded con- ditions, the excellent administrat ion of the hospital and the de- voted and capable staff of doctors and nurses." "Yesterday we had six people in beds in the corridor. We are very grateful for the gift, for without a benefactor like this, such a project would be imposs- ible", commented William F. Ogden Chairman of the Hospital Board of Trustees. Mitchell said he and the other Dunaway trustees "were assured by the Hospital trustees that the gift combined with federal funds will permit the necessary facil- ities to assure Dover and the proceed wRh the work. An announcement was made at the meeting that Miss Elsie Mur. phy had left Zion Church $20,000 and the feeling was that this sum should be used toward construc. tion of the new addition, as Miss Elsie was always interested in building of any kind. A further announcement was made that Mrs. Frances Packette Todd had added $5,000 to the Trust created by her some time ago as a memorial to her mother, the late Mrs. William Bainbridge Packette. A proposal to become interest. ed in the Pastoral Counselling and Consultation Centers of Greater Washington, was briefly discussed by Mr. Bartlett, after the vestry at an earlier meeting had shown interest in the possi- bilities of this service in mar- riage counselling and psychiatric aid. Attendants at the congre- gational meeting showed keen in. terest in this proposal. Further study and investigation will be made into the possibility of such a service on a non.denomination. al basis. All denominations of this area are urged to participate in these discussions, since the needs are most certainly not con- fined to any one denomination.
