Thanking Front-line Workers Everywhere

     Again, Athens Rotary Club expresses thanks to front-line workers everywhere by thanking our own healthcare workers.  On a rainy Christmas Eve, "Thank You!" signs were placed beside sidewalks near Ohio Health O'Bleness Hospital to thank our healthcare workers for their service during the COVID-19 pandemic.  President Sheila Mark was assisted by Diane McVey and her husband Craig Johnson in placing the signs.  
     The signs were already available from similar previous events (all held in conjunction with the Athens Sunrise Rotary Club):  on June 29 held again at Ohio Health O'Bleness;  on July 14 held at the Athens County Health Department; and on July 21 at Station 51 of the Athens County Emergency Medical Service (ACEMS) on West Union Street).
