St. Michael Medical Center Foundation
Dr. Maurice S. Mathis Guild
What began in 1961 as a handful of friends gathered in support of St. Michael Medical Center has become the vibrant and successful Mathis Guild today. While the activities have changed over the years, the group’s enthusiasm for friendship and dedication to community service remains unwavering. The Mathis Guild has raised monies to support programs and equipment at St. Michael Medical Center, resulting in a healthier community. Their first effort — back in 1962 — was a fashion show which has since evolved into the current Mathis Guild Luncheon on the first Friday in May. Through its fundraising success, the Guild has been able to make a difference in the care provided to women, children and those who need it the most.

Who was Dr. Maurice S. Mathis?
Dr. Maurice S. Mathis was a physician who settled in Bremerton after his retirement from the Navy. “Pops” was a robust, down-to-earth man who held the community close to his heart.
