For having the enthusiasm, faith, and commitment to provide excellent medical service to
the uninsured of our community by opening the Community Care Center, a free clinic;

For using their influence and energy to secure volunteers, funds, and equipment for the
clinic during their retirement years, when they might have chosen a more leisurely

For providing a place where others can give something back to their community by
donating their services to care for poor, medically uninsured people;

And, most importantly, for their insistence that everyone in our community should receive
compassionate, high-quality medical care that promotes wellness, relieves suffering,
and restores health.
