On Tuesday, November 11, 2014, Indiana Health Center Kokomo celebrated Veteran’s Day. Staff volunteered to decorate the clinic’s lobby and greet patients as they came in to the clinic. Veterans were greeted with a special ribbon and a thank you. Children were given educational coloring sheets, which explained the importance of Veteran’s Day.
“We had a great response from the patients,” WIC Program Manager Lora Burke-Mulkey described. “Some of them of course are vets and as we talked with them and gave them a ribbon we thanked them for their service. A couple of them even got teary eyed. It was a great experience.”
Many thanks to Lora and her staff, including Mark Lamp and Linda Soots-Bowley (pictured below). Thanks to all veterans for keeping our country safe!
