Happy Birthday to Us
The year 2016 is our 80th anniversary. We actually trace our start back to February 1936 -- Feb. 28 to be precise, according to Katie Martin, our resident expert on dates for this place.
For that reason, we're kicking off the celebration this month. We're introducing our 80th Anniversary Honorary Chairs, community leaders who have been proud and generous supporters of Schreiber through the years.
We're inviting you to make a birthday donation in support of our Therapy Services. Did you know: Every time we provide therapy, we lose money. That's because reimbursements for pediatric therapy services are the lowest in all of health care. The reimbursements do not cover our costs. Your gift now will allow us to continue providing our high-quality services -- services that are not available anywhere else in central Pennsylvania.
We'd like you to mark you calendar now for Saturday, June 25. That's the day we will host an Open House here at the Center. Join us for an afternoon of fun, food and music, take a tour of the center and see the Schreiber Bike Path we will start this spring.
We're rolling out our 80th anniversary "I Love Schreiber" essay contest. Starting in April, we're inviting you -- the Schreiber family -- to tell us why you're passionate about Schreiber Pediatric. We're inviting parents past and present, kids who received services here, volunteers past and present, members of the community who knew or worked with Edna Schreiber. We want to hear from anyone who had contact with the Center through the years to answer this question:
Why is Schreiber important to you?
We will recognize the top entries in the following four categories:
Finally, we invite you to take a moment to browse through some of the old photos we took out of our files and uploaded to our website. Some of you might spot a familiar face or two. If you see somebody you think you might recognize, drop us a note or call Dan Fink at 717-393-0425 ext. 105.
