On Wednesday, June 3rd, 2020, our Community Liaison, April Avis had the privilege of organizing a Healthcare Hero Parade to show support to the community and healthcare facility staff, along with their residents. Other healthcare providers that participated were Hickory Creek of Scottsburg, CareFirst Rehab, Kindred Hospice, River Crossing of Charlestown and Amedisys Hospice. Each participant met at JayC in Scottsburg and decorated their cars and united to show support.
When all the cars were ready, we were escorted by the Scottsburg Police Department and the Scottsburg Fire and Rescue through Scottsburg. With their help we took the parade to Waters of Scottsburg, Hickory Creek, Scott Memorial Health, Lake Pointe Village and Hampton Oaks. The day was beautiful, but the smiles that we were able to see, made this parade successful.
A special thanks to everyone that helped and participated in this event. April Avis said, “My heart is so full! I asked and my community delivered so many ways today. We see and we love and appreciate you for your daily selflessness. We had a great group today from many companies all with the same mission of being the light to our little community during such a hard time.”
