Call for Holiday Decorations for CCMC

Cordova Community Medical Center needs snowmen and snow-women to decorate the area behind the hospital where long term care residents, who have had limited exposure to holiday decorations this year, will be able to see them.

Any level of creativity is acceptable.  Please keep in mind that they will be outside and subject to the elements. Should you choose to use pallets for your design, CCMC has lots of them. 

They can be completed anytime between now and November 15th. Please contact Vivian Knop (, 424-8272) if you or your family are willing to help with this.
