On Jan. 10, 2020, Life Care Center of Plano, Texas, celebrated its 30th anniversary with a very memorable Winter Ball party.
Despite the bad weather and tornado sirens going off, the attendance was remarkable. Many former residents and associates, as well as neighbors, Rotarians, hospital case managers, vendors and current residents and their family members turned out.
Stephen Pride, younger brother of country and western music legend Charlie Pride, entertained the crowd with his own vocal talents. Roderick Liggins, maintenance director, smoked some brisket, and the kitchen team prepared deep-fried macaroni and cheese, baked chicken, beans, bread and salad.
During the program, associates recognized Bettie McGee, central supply director, as Snow Queen for the Winter Ball. She is the only original staff member still working at the building.
"We had a blast," said Randy Langford, executive director. "God blessed us, and everyone had a truly remarkable time."
