Surrey Place Care Center hosted a Hall of Fame Café celebration on October 9th to honor elders at the local nursing home. The purpose of the Hall of Fame program is to recognize the outstanding accomplishments and experiences of the center’s elders. Employees, volunteers, and community members are also honored for their contributions to the home and society as a whole.
This year’s honorees for Surrey Place were: Norman S. Anders, James Thompson, Denward Morgan, and Shanna D. Kirby.
“We stand to learn so much from the lives of our residents, and we would be remiss not to share these stories with as many people as possible,” said Administrator/CEO Brenda Lacy. “We’re proud to celebrate the accomplishments of these individuals, and we’re grateful to the community for supporting this event.”
Surrey Place Care Center is one of 123 locations operated by Louisville, Ky.-based Signature HealthCARE. Launched in 2003, the Hall of Fame event is hosted annually by each Signature home at different times throughout the year. In recent years, Signature has taken a different approach by having each center host its Hall of Fame ceremony on the same day, creating a synchronized, company-wide event.
“Our residents have given so much to their hometowns and our nation, and these contributions deserve to be celebrated,” said Signature President and CEO Joe Steier. “The Hall of Fame Café induction ceremonies are a small way for us to say ‘thank you.’”
