BEATRICE – Some intricate stained-glass window panes now adorn the entrance to the Beatrice Community Hospital Chapel, thanks to donors to the BCH Foundation.
The windows were unveiled in a special ceremony yesterday. Hospital Foundation Executive Director Sam Rennick says the windows were the result of donations in the memory of former Hospital Gift Shop Manager Jane Aden, in memory of Alyce Delozier and in honor of major foundation supporters Gene and Elsie Caspers.
:58 “in their honor”
The series of three stained glass panes were created by Palace Glass, in Lincoln. Owner Harry Tompkin said he wanted the project to help compliment art that the hospital already displayed.
:23 “it turned out”
Tompkins talked about the design of the stained glass and the meaning that can be imagined through elements of the artwork.
:38 “see in the window”
Tompkins says most of the glass in the windows is antique, but also contains fused glass.
The presentation attended by family members of those honored, took place in the lobby of Beatrice Community Hospital, outside the chapel entrance.
The Beatrice Community Hospital Foundation held their annual Centurion Dinner last night, at the Vintage Venue in downtown Beatrice. The event recognizes the support of the foundation’s contributors.
