The AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center Mainland Auxiliary held its annual luncheon June 17 at Frog Rock Golf and Country Club in Hammonton. More than 60 members and guests attended, including family members of Helena Barone, of Mullica Township, who was named Auxilian of the Year.

Judy Courter, of Absecon, author of a recently published book, “Fred and Ethel Noyes of Smithville New Jersey: The Artist and the Entrepreneur,” read excerpts and offered anecdotes about the Noyeses’ long-term and continuing connection with the Mainland Auxiliary. “The Noyeses were the backbone of the Auxiliary,” said ARMC Mainland Auxiliary President Linda Stanton, adding that Ethel in particular was a “driving force in organizing and promoting the auxiliary.” She was named the first Auxilian of the Year in 1974, and continued to support the hospital throughout her life.
