St. Mary's To Spread Seeds Of Wellness | Business
The cornerstone of St. Mary's Hospital was laid 100 years ago on Oct. 8, 1911. The hospital opened its doors in September 1912.
On Saturday, Oct. 8, the hospital will celebrate the laying of that cornerstone by handing out free apples -- a cornerstone of good health -- throughout Dane County.
There are 12 locations in total in Madison, Middleton, DeForest, Waunakee, Sun Prairie, Oregon and McFarland. People can stop by anytime between 1 and 4 p.m. to receive their free fruit. And in the spirit of good food safety practice, we'll also be handing out free fruit wipes along with the apples.
For more information on where the apples will be handed out and when, visit www.stmarysmadison.com/apples.
For those who can’t stop by for a physical apple, St. Mary's is allowing you to sow some virtual seeds of wellness. Simply visit www.facebook.com/stmarysmadison and click on the Apples tab. Share one on your page and send one to a friend to make sure everyone stays healthy this winter season.
The apples event is the first of many centennial celebrations that will take place throughout 2012 as St. Mary’s commemorates its 100th anniversary.
