Key note speaker, Pam Garramone’s presentation, “7 Ways to Feel Happier Instantly,” focused on practicing gratitude. Pam’s talk, followed by direct care, staff years of service and community commitment awards made for an incredibly uplifting morning. Thank you to all who joined us for the celebration, and congratulations to all the award recipients!
