Children to celebrate Children’s Care’s 60th with in-house party

60th-logo-red-with-years-and-cchs-logoOn March 2nd, 1952, “Crippled Children’s Hospital & School”opened its doors to a small number of children recovering from polio.

Exactly sixty years later, on Friday, March 2nd, 2012, children and staff will celebrate with a party in the gym at Children’s Care in Sioux Falls. We’ll have cake, punch, and games, and we’ll see the debut of the new Children’s Care video. Our music therapist Cherie Ortman will provide entertainment with former staff member, social worker Nate Anderson. They’ve written a song especially for the occasion! Dr. E.B. Morrison, founding executive director of “Crippled Children’s Hospital & School,” will also attend.

The party will be held from 2:00 to 3:30 p.m. Alumni and former students are welcome to attend for a look around and to visit with old friends. If you have any questions, call (605) 782-2384.

There are so many wonderful people with expertise in many different disciplines who work at Children's Care, and they come together every day to do what is in best interest of the individuals we serve. The best part of my job is seeing my students make progress, knowing that I am an important piece of their lives in teaching them skills to be successful. My students are my focus and the heart of my career.
