At our annual Rose Society Celebration each year, the hospital gives the annual Elinor Kirkby Memorial Service Award in honor of Elinor’s legacy. The award is given each year to someone who has demonstrated extraordinary commitment to the mission, vision, and values of the hospital. At this year’s Rose Society Celebration, held on November 7, 2019 at The Country Club in Chestnut Hill, MA, NEBH honored the Currie Family as the recipients of the 2019 Kirkby Award.
In 2019, Mrs. Barbara L. Currie, and other members of the Currie family, made a generous multi-generational gift to underwrite the rose program so that it may continue for many years to come. We extend our deep thanks to the Currie family for ensuring the future of this unique culture!
