On Thursday, March 26, 2015, The House of Good Shepherd hosted our annual Wellness Expo with more than 20 vendors and over 250 participants - both staff and children. A new feature of the Wellness Expo was the Wishing Well designed and created by Training Secretary Doyle Rager. As each person entered the expo, they received a ballot with a health tip and a space to provide a wish for someone! Here is a sampling of wishes from staff and children.
FROM THE KIDS:
Maria's wish: That my grandma gets rid of her cancer.
Matt's wish: I wish for safety and good will for my family.
Johnathin's wish: I wish that me and mom can join a gym.
After an extensive search, The House of the Good Shepherd announced its new Development and Communications Director, Myron Thurston III. Thurston will succeed Carol Altimonte who has served The House for 33 years.
Thurston has spent the last five years as the Assistant Director of Development and Communications for the Cardiac Research Institute at Masonic Medical Research Laboratory.
