The 4th of July message

by Andrea Powell, HPCCR Electronic Communications Manager

Our proud HPCLC staff and their winning vehicle

Ah, the 4th of July parade.  Nothing says small town America better, does it?  Or big town America, for that matter.  If the fireworks are the grand finale of the day, the parade is the pinnacle of the holiday, a family friendly event that brings excitement to kids of all ages.  It’s Americana at it’s finest.

You can’t get a more perfect example of small town America than Lincolnton, NC.  (Well, you might personally disagree, but if you’ve never been there, you can’t judge.  It’s pretty awesome.)  Anyway, the town of Lincolnton had a parade on the 4th of July and it entailed a contest.  A “best vehicle” contest.  Which the fantastic staff of Hospice & Palliative Care Lincoln County entered.  And won!

The cool part about all this is that the HPCLC staff didn’t just throw a bunch of confetti and streamers onto a truck.  They spent a lot of time planning and preparing.  They were intentional in their efforts, making a statement about how they support the Lincolnton community.  They wanted to reverse the negative connotation that sometimes comes along with the concept of hospice.  They wanted to show that they are truly invested in providing the best end-of-life support to their neighbors.  They wanted to show how much they care.

The staff of Hospice & Palliative Care Lincoln County won 1st place.  Plus, they got a trophy which is now being proudly displayed on the table right by the front door to the office.  Message received loud and clear, don’t you think?
