Employees thank Mock

Employees at 805 Newtown Circle gathered Wednesday, April 24 to show appreciation for Sam Mock’s consistent hard work, and especially for the initiative he took during the previous week’s storm, which delayed the health department’s opening time. Mock posted signs in the clinic waiting room and talked to patients about the altered clinic hours. Employees presented Mock with a certificate of appreciation, cake and his favorite Gatorade drink.
