Mustard Seed Community Health celebrated its grand opening on Saturday, April 30, under threatening skies that failed to keep away many Cottage Grove residents, volunteers, board members, sponsors and donors.
The medical clinic, which aims to serve the underserved, opened March 1 of this year.
About 100 people attended the grand opening including Greensboro City Council members Sharon Hightower and Nancy Hoffmann.
Vietnamese and Burmese foods were served along with a traditional American meal – pizza. Mustard Seeds were handed out. Games were played. Clinic tours were given and door prizes were given away.
Board Chair Scott Kutos told the crowd that, “Mustard See is an attempt to solve the national problem of healthcare access by working at the local level. The dream of the board at Mustard Seed and its medical director, Dr. Beth Mulberry, is to solve that problem and become a role model to other communities.”
Dr. Mulberry thanked those who organized the event and those who had helped make the clinic a reality.
And the rain held off.
