Turkey birthday kids
For the past decade this motley “rafter” of Turkey kids have been getting together to share a meal around Thanksgiving. All of these folks have their birthday’s that fall on Thanksgiving from year to year.
Please give them a gobble when you see them. This year the “gang of turkeys” was Charis Caldwell, Rich Leety, Dorothy Snearly, Roger Wulf, Patty Fredericks, Steve Rice, Pat Seydel and Robin Millyard. Birthday folks are between ages 50-93.
Glenwood Medical Recognized For Relay For Life Contributions
American Cancer Society executives were in Glenwood Springs this week and they took a moment to present a plaque of appreciation to Glenwood Medical Associates for their contributions of both time and money to the 2014 Roaring Fork Relay For Life. GMA was the largest contributor for cash donations and GMA clinical staff member Maureen McGhee was this year’s tireless Director of the event.
This year’s Relay For Life took place in Sayre Park on Saturday, August 16, and from noon until midnight participants walked, jogged and ran to help raise money for the fight against cancer.
“We work so closely with cancer patients.” Maureen McGhee said. “And everyone’s life has been touched by this frightening disease. Raising money to help end the fight against cancer is a mission everyone at Glenwood Medical is happy to be a part of.”
The Glenwood Medical providers matched the amount of money raised by clinical and support staff members.
