Relay for Life

A rural sociologist at LSU once determined that a community that wouldn't support a veterinary practice, would soon dry up and cease to exist. I feel that a veterinary practice that doesn't embrace and become deeply involved in the community will also dry up and cease to exist. So, we do! We are involved in many things.
My wife worked with community leaders to help bring Relay For Life here nine years ago and it continues as an important community project. She has recently become a director with Mary Kay Cosmetics, driving a company car, and the townspeople seem to be proud of this accomplishment. She believes that a pink Cadillac will do the county good and is working to earn the privilege of driving that car! We sponsor many activities and many individuals, and it's a joy to be a vital part of things.
The community supported our son as a People to People Ambassador to China between his junior and senior years in high school. All of our children have attended Boys State or Girls State and had many opportunities for growth and involvement throughout their school experiences here. All have worked in foreign mission trips through our church, and although we live in a rural area, we have had visitors in our home from Scotland, England, China and India, as well as from many parts of this country.
I guess if our practice has a motto, it would be borrowed from Booker T. Washington. "Excellence is to do a common thing in an uncommon way." That's what we strive for-it's a tremendous challenge.
We use the telephone A LOT! Clearly, it has been one of the keys to our practice growth. We are known as the practice that checks on you, because we do-we make progress calls on nearly everybody who comes into the clinic for anything other than routine vaccinations.
