Bishop Drumm Guild Bishop Drumm retirement center in Johnston is comprised of the Bishop Drumm Nursing Care Center, Martina Place (assisted living), and McCauley Terrace (independent living). The Bishop Drumm Guild was formed in 1939 to assist the Sisters of Mercy and staff in their ministry of providing Christian care to the residents. Over the years the Guild has raised money for this purpose, which has provided some needed equipment and furniture, as well as extra entertainment and treats for the residents. Guild members also volunteer for activities, including the weekly garage sale. The yearly membership dues of $10 enables the Guild to continue its objectives. We are looking for new members, men and women of any age, to help us in this ministry. As a member, you can be as active as you want. Some members volunteer their time and talents and others elect to be inactive but still support the Guild with their dues. Please consider joining our group. Contact Barbara Schiek at 270-6132 or Rose Dittmer at 277-7401.
