Interactive Thank You Board

In May,  Spring Meadows Senior Community started an interactive Thank you board.  This is a great way to show our appreciation to one another. A simple thank you can brighten anyone's day. It can make you feel accomplished and appreciated for your hard work. It is always nice when someone notices something good that you do. If a staff member receives a thank you it will be filed. The board is located in the hallway between the aviary and Spring Meadows Therapy Room. Please take the time to spread the cheer and brighten someone's day with a thank you.
