Sounds of support echoed through the streets and into the hospital hallways as Vernon shared some love for health care workers recently.

Community members and even front line workers turned out to show their thanks during shift change at Vernon Jubilee Hospital Tuesday evening.

“I was super excited to organize this as I was witness to Sunday evening’s appreciation as I was on shift and know how much it means to us working to hear the support of our community,” said Michelle Collins, a nurse at VJH who rallied troops for the event.
