Happy Happy Happy Thanksgiving
Happy Happy Happy Thanksgiving to You and Yours from the Collage Family!
We may not be multi-millionaire, self-proclaimed happy rednecks from the bayou of Louisiana like those in the hit reality show, Duck Dynasty, but we sure have lots to be thankful for. So while the turducken thaws and we all get ready to celebrate Thanksgiving with family and friends, we wanted to take a minute to say thanks to all our friends in Kearney and Grand Island.
Here’s a few reason our Collage team is Happy Happy Happy!!
We’re so thankful for our dedicated staff. Just look at how seriously we took No-shave November. 😀
With an incredible amount of support in both Kearney and Grand Island, our Duck Commander Warehouses, a.k.a. our Centers, are fully renovated and warmly “duckorated.” The confidence expressed by generous donors at our 1st annual fundraising banquet in Grand Island allowed us to open our doors and start serving women on October 8th.
Once we purchase a few more exam beds and complete our training, “we’re fixin’ to start” Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI) testing in early 2014.
We’re so blessed by our Board members Ron Eckloff, Mike Yoder, Sarah Luke, Brian Bergstrom Pastor Greg Mast, Darcy Hughes and Julie Brenton who govern our clan with wisdom and integrity.
Our volunteer pregnancy counselors Renee Brodine, Jolie Larson and Karen McClenhan have served our clients with compassion and encouragement for more than 40 years combined! Ultrasound technician, Timaree Smith, Dr. Brent Adamson and Dr. Amie Jorgensen have also joined our Collage family.
The result of us all coming together is that we have been able to fulfill our mission much more fully this year than ever before. “We reckon the Almighty” really does do more than we can ask or imagine.
As we gather around our tables in prayer this holiday season, just like the Robertsons do at the end of every episode, we’ll “thank the good Lord” for you and for communities who believe it really is possible to create beauty from the unexpected.
We’d love to hear what y’all are thankful for. Just leave us a comment.
Have an awesome holiday!
