Caroline and Joe Price
Part of Something Big

Married 70 years last December, Joe and Caroline Price are longtime friends of Frederick Memorial Hospital. When the FMH Development Council's Annual Support Committee started The 1902 Club, the couple were among its first members. Both are known for their generous natures and giving spirits.

Joe, 95, is a World War II veteran and the oldest living member of American Legion Post #11. During the war years, he earned a Citation for Meritorious Service for working around-the-clock to help care for a group of 15,289 wounded soldiers who were sent to Ft. Mitchell, NJ for treatment. A gifted athlete, Joe also coached and officiated youth baseball, basketball and football for many years.

Caroline, who will turn 90 this year, spent nearly 15 years volunteering at the FMH Information Desk. A former reference librarian at Hood College, Caroline says she thoroughly enjoyed meeting the public, as a member of the FMH Auxiliary, and being of assistance to them at what was often a difficult, confusing time.

"I used to sit at the Information Desk when it was quiet and read the names of all the Hospital's supporters. Seeing our name on the wall, surrounded by the names of so many of our friends and neighbors, made me really proud. We were glad then and we're glad now to be a part of something as important as helping to make sure our hospital is the best it can be."

--Caroline Price, 1902 Club Member
