Tuesday, June 4
Tuesday, September 24

HBN volunteer member Alison O'Neil of Senior Select Solutions, a tour participant, sent the following note to W. B. Baldwin, HBN President/CEO, following the March 19 Shepherd Center tour and luncheon:

WB and Board,

The tour at The Shepherd Center was incredibly inspiring yesterday. I so appreciate being included. It was also special to be a witness to the donation from HBN to the SHARE program. After hearing about the valiant efforts made on behalf of those living with the daily challenges of living with PTSD it is more than clear why the HBN supports this program that restores significant normalcy to those who have given their lives to protect ours. We are all too aware of loss through dying but to think of how one lives life with increased mental challenges implied by PTSD and multiplied by other physical disabilities is unimaginable. The coping skills and on the ground support that Shepherd follows their patients with ensures their success long term.

I am proud to help grow the HBN and impact the lives of those who have served us all!"
