FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- Community members gathered at Baker Street Station Sunday night to celebrate Visiting Nurse, the oldest hospice program in the region.
For the past 33 years, the community has held the gathering to remember loved ones who have passed away or used Visiting Nurse. The Baker Street tree was lit for the holiday season, and the community held a candle light vigil.
Mayor Tom Henry was at the celebration to read a proclamation and honor the program for their 130 years of service.
"Every year we take this occasion to celebrate Visiting Nurse Service and hospice and the palliative care that, in many cases, they provide throughout our community. And tonight we're celebrating well over 100 years of that care in Fort Wayne," he said.
