This year’s honorees for Prestonsburg HealthCARE are:

Elders and stakeholders traveled to Winchester, Kentucky to compete in the 2014 Signature HealthCARE Senior Olympics.  Our team, the Signature “Healthketeers” Prestonsburg Club, received a trophy for best overall presentation. Our homemade t-shirts and banner along with our cheer may have contributed to the win, but our team spirit of cooperation certainly sealed the deal!  Elder Franklin Whitt also earned an individual second place medal in the “Moonshine Pong” category.  Frank was so excited to win his first ever medal!  Congratulations to Frank and all of our Senior Olympians for a job well done!  We all had fun! Forever let us hold the banner high!

Happy birthday!
