For almost a decade, Independence Plus, Inc. has upheld its annual tradition of creating wishes and releasing them into the air in the New Year.
Our wishes include hopeful messages for people everywhere, including our patients and families, our colleagues, our family and friends, and ourselves. Each wish is written down on a small piece of paper and then placed in a purple helium balloon.
Together, we released almost 50 balloons this year.
Our annual balloon release is one of the many ways we prepare for the New Year – and it’s something our employees look forward to every year. The release is followed by an assortment of fresh seafood, including pickled herring, symbolic for prosperity and good fortune. All are welcome to join us next year – in sending virtual wishes and in visiting us in person!
We wish a happy and healthy 2014 to all of our patients and families, staff, and all the people who help us do what we love! We look forward to continuing our work with you this year.
Do you have a New Year tradition? If so, tell us here!
