The community is invited to celebrate with Hospice of Washington County as they mark their 30th year in the area.

A community open house is being held at their offices Tuesday afternoon with an Alive After 5 with the Chamber of Commerce that evening. Executive Director Katrina Altenhofen says this month they are kicking off their first capital campaign, “We’ve never really done a major capital campaign. Our building is getting in need of either some TLC or more than likely, because we’ve outgrown it, to put another building across on the other side of the driveway. So we had one of our volunteers say, ‘You know, 30 years, let’s take 30 days, and raise $300,000.’ So that is one of the things that we are aiming for, we’re shooting for the stars.”

The local non-profit provides comfort care for those at the end of life with a variety of services including music therapy, massage therapy, nurse care, and bereavement support for families.
