The repast will begin and end with a collegiate touch as culinary students from Ogeechee Technical College serve “five” mini-breads and students from Savannah Technical College present “five” small-bite desserts. To whet your appetite champagne from around the world will be served.  (Fun-food station for children.)
A personal Horse Expo will be held for our guests throughout the day with ongoing demonstrations of horse care and horsemanship. The afternoon show will begin with a Parade of Horses to be followed by demonstrations of various disciplines: therapeutic riding, stationary roping, carriage, hunt, jump, dressage, and more. Coordinated by Cheryl Toby a veteran Horse Expo presenter, James Cooler of Bluffton (known for “Equine Communication Without Boundaries”), and Eleanor Ellis from Evermore Farms.

HD is a life-changing disease that affects families through the generations. If your parent has HD you have a 50-50 chance of inheriting the disease. Symptoms usually appear in mid-life (30-50), but 10% are children. A few hundred in coastal South Carolina and Georgia may have the disease, with potentially thousands at risk. More than one generation may suffer at once.

“We’ve been told a number of times by our patients that our office doesn’t actually feel like an office,” says Wound Care’s president, Paula Kreissler.

“When you have a condition of any kind, you what to be comfortable where you’re being treated. Our Savannah office has a feeling of “home” and we’re striving to do the same thing in our Pooler location.”
