DENNISON -- To prepare for the upcoming celebration of the organization's 100th anniversary, Trinity Hospital Twin City's Marketing and Community Outreach Department is asking that area residents consider sharing their hospital memories and/or memorabilia. Stories, photos and other historical memorabilia from the former Twin City Hospital are needed for a memory book and historical displays to commemorate the hospital's century milestone.

Any current or former area resident who would like to share a fond memory, story or historical photo or artifact can call 740-922-7450, ext. 2124, or submit stories with names and contact information by mail to: Trinity Hospital Twin City, Attn: Marketing Department, 819 N. First St., Dennison, OH 44621. Residents can also share information electronically via the hospital's website at www.trinitytwincity.org and clicking on the 'Contact Us' tab or by sending an email to kbowe@trinitytwincity.org on or by Friday, July 27. Many of the memories shared and items collected from the community will be available for public viewing at the hospital's 100th Anniversary Celebration Open House which will take place on Sunday, Aug. 26 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. More details about the event will be provided in the future.

"We know there are many people out there who can share some historical facts about our hospital, such as the first or last baby to be born here," said Tiffany Poland, Hospital director of Marketing &and Community Outreach. "We would also love to borrow any historical photos of past hospital doctors, employees or volunteers. We know our hospital used to have a nursing school and a school for radiology technologists, and it would be really nice to have some photos of those students."

"Memorabilia such as old hospital brochures, pins, newsletters and small medical equipment would also add value to our historical displays," added Poland. "We appreciate any help the community can offer to assist us in telling our hospital's story from the past 100 years."
