Now is the Time Film and Panel Discussion a Roaring Success

The room was full with people standing in the back and along the sides. The film received a rousing round of applause!
 
Thanks to the great group of people from sponsoring organizations that planned, promoted and produced this 2-hour community presentation.  Special thanks to our panelists Gene Uphoff, MD; Kathy Phister-Minogue, Retired MSN; Rebecca Tilley, RN Surgical Nurse, Steve Clement, La Grande City Mayor and Moderator Thorman Hulse.
