The Miriam Hospital Women’s Association will proudly present its 31st annual Recognition Award to Robin Engle at the Association’s 118th Annual Meeting and Luncheon. The event will take place at Ledgemont Country Club on June 3.
More than 30 years ago, when she moved to Providence, Robin Engle joined The Miriam Hospital Women’s Association to meet other women and connect with the community. Today, she is a board member, recent past president and, with Leslie Sax, co-chair of The Women’s Association cookbook, “Simply More Delicious.” She currently serves on the Hospital Board of Governors.
Engle says, “I feel that The Women’s Association is still important today to the hospital. It has purchased a lot of equipment in the hospital that has not been in the budget; it runs the gift shop; it has provided music and art and books for the hospital, to name a few things. Many of the volunteers in the hospital are also members of the Women’s Association. I hope to continue as a member of the Women’s Association to help others make the connections to the hospital that I have made.”
Engle lives with her husband, Jim, in Providence, where she is a member of Temple Emanu-El, previously serving on the temple board. She also has served on the boards of what was then the Women’s Division of Jewish Federation of R.I. and the Jewish Community Center of R.I.
