A Thank You To the Celebration’s Attendees and Business Partners

Posted on : 07-01-2010 | By : Silver Cross | In : Events

The Celebration of Health took place on Friday, June 18. Unfortunately, around the time the Celebration began was around the time one of the season’s biggest storms hit the area. With the inclement weather, the event didn’t go quite as planned, but we still got plenty out of the day.

To all attendees and our business partners, thank you for turning what could have been a disastrous night into a memorable one. Here’s hoping next year’s Celebration is aided by sunlight and clear skies!
