Pickett Care & Rehab Hall of Fame inductees

On January 13, Pickett Care and Rehabilitation Center held its annual Hall of Fame Café.
The event is the creation of Signature HealthCare, Inc., and this year we commemorated four incredible individuals who served our nation and their community.
The program is designed to honor the folks who contributed in previous generations to our ultimate and present benefit.
This year’s inductees included: Ruby Taylor, Geneva Mason, Kendle Thrasher and Lt. Col. John Williams. We’ve been told that this year’s Hall of Fame Café proved to be a grand evening. If so, it was because of the many people who so graciously joined us in helping put together the celebration. Many thanks to the DAV, April’s Flowers and Gifts, photographer Misty Griffin, musicians Garry Allen, Jimmy Bilbrey, and Karen Buford, our sound guy Branden Lawson, and First Methodist Church of Livingston for their willingness to loan equipment for the event. Special thanks to Dr. Larry and Gina Mason, Elaine Storie, Hollis Thrasher, Glenda Shelton and Deanie Williams with their help in providing information.
Many thanks to the staff at Pickett Care & Rehabilitation Center for the planning and the producing of this year’s Hall of Fame Café.
As one visitor said, “The food, the music, and the presentations were all fitting and well done. It was a very gracious tribute to the inductees and their families.” This would not be the case if it were not for a talented and hard working staff.
It was a great night, but only because of the great lives of those we honored. We would be amiss in failing to thank our inductees who spent their remarkable lives serving us.
A brief summary of the inductee bios are provided on page six of this issue for your enjoyment.
