The open house and tour of the new hospital was very impressive; however many of us who attended were very surprised and disappointed that Dr. R.E. Molenaar was not mentioned in the oral presentation and tour. As we recall, he was very instrumental in setting the wheels in motion to build the old hospital.
Dr. Molenaar had a professional practice in our community for over 40 years and referred many of his patients to the hospital. We, the undersigned, wish to point out that his contributions to the community were numerous and feel he should have been included in the presentation.
Our purpose for addressing this is that the history of the hospital will not be complete for future generations.
