Video of the Program is below.
On Friday, June 9th, Dr. Bob (Dr. Robert S. Ross) was honored during the Ortonville Area Health Services’ Customer Appreciation Day at Lakeside Park for his 40 years of service. Dr. Bob was quick to confirm when he, at the end of the Program, had the microphone – this was not a retirement party!
It was an emotional evening as the Mayor of Ortonville, Doctors, friends and family had a few words to say (and stories to share!) The crowd that came to celebrate with him and the words that were spoken were a true tribute to an amazing Doctor, Community supporter and local sports enthusiast.
Although many great comments were made and laughs were shared, one portion of the program really speaks to the personal connections and the deep sense of community that are grown, here on the MNbump. Dr. Stacy Longnecker noted that Dr. Bob delivered her… Dr. Bob also delivered her oldest child, Owen, when she was living in Ortonville during an internship portion of her education while working to return to Ortonville as a Doctor at Ortonville Area Health Services. She shared a moment from her youth when Dr. Bob made a lasting impression and how he was a foundational piece within her future plans. We are thankful for these connections that are made… and thankful to have had Dr. Bob and Mary’s community commitment for so many years (and many more years to come!)
