Missouri Baptist Sullivan Hospital participated in the annual Crawford County Fair Parade on Tuesday evening, July 9 with a very creative float. The theme for the fair was “Passport to Fun.” When the pre-judging process was complete, the hospital was awarded the first place ribbon in the business category for their entry.
The hospital’s float depicted a tropical paradise with a Tiki Hut on a beach. The Tiki Hut was the clever repurposing of the little multi-colored barn created for the Meramec Community Parade float. Lynn Frey, Medical Office Building Manager, coordinated the float’s design with the support of the Maintenance staff and other employees. Nick Miller, EMS Manager pulled the float with the maintenance truck. Kayla Dawson, NP Sandra Hagene, NP and Tamara Cooks, MD, providers from the Steelville and Cuba Clinics with other employees, distributed candy to hundreds of fairgoers.
Congratulations to the hospital and its employees for receiving the first place ribbon at the county-wide event.
