In these hard economic times, it’s the strength of the community that brings us all together. The true spirit of the holiday isn’t found in the parties or gifts, but in the memories we make with friends and loved ones.
In celebration of the holiday season, the annual Children’s Christmas Party was held Saturday, December 7, 2019 in the Brooks Cafeteria. Sponsored by the Auxiliary of BMH, the event featured activities, refreshments and a special visit from Santa and Mrs. Claus (Kenny Long and Cindi Polowy). The event was open to all children and grandchildren of BMH & TLC employees, volunteers and medical staff.
