Richmond County Hospice turns 30

This past Saturday, Richmond County Hospice celebrated our 30-year anniversary.

A celebration was held in a rustic chicken house at Triple L Farms in Derby. The chicken house was transformed into a sophisticated country Gala by hospice employees and volunteers. The night consisted of a delicious country themed buffet catered by Hidden Treasures, anniversary cake made by Kool Kakes, line dancing performed by the Hamlet Senior Center Silver Liners, music from DJ Stewart Niemyer, wine from Little River Winery and beer from Southern Pines Brewery.

Photography was provided by Mary Kate Lambeth with Boondocks Photography. A few words of gratitude were spoken by Neal Watkins, current Board Chairman and CEO Kristina Leyden. Handmade set of patriotic cornhole boards, made by Army veteran Matt Harshman and donated by board member Brian Baucom, were raffled off during the night. 

A very special and sincere thanks to the Lambeth family for the use of their farm, especially Mary Kate and Marcia who donated their time and energy in making this a very special night for Hospice. We strongly encourage you to visit the Lambeths at the Derby Store for a unique experience and to get your summer produce, and a hand dipped ice cream cone…while their thank them for their gracious support of Richmond County Hospice.

Mary Kate/Boondocks Photography will share her photos of the night to this page when completed.
