Proceeds from this event benefit the Elaine Hill Memorial Nursing Scholarship. Elaine Hill died in February of 2009 after a battle with breast cancer. She is remembered for her life of service as a nurse at the Milbridge Medical Center for more than 30 years. In her memory, the Women’s Health Resource Library established a nursing scholarship. Each year a scholarship is awarded to a graduating senior at Narraguagus High School and a non-traditional student pursuing a nursing education.
