After winning the vacation voucher, Redgey and I spent a lot of time thinking and dreaming and studying a map trying to decide where we wanted to go. After much discussion, we decided to takt the whole family to Disney World. Anita Longnecker was great to work with. She knew everything i needed to know and if she didn’t, she made sure to find out. She was very patient and worked with us to make sure everything was arranged just right. We had a wonderful trip and I think the adults loved it as much as the kids. Thank you to the Big Stone Health Care Foundation for helping me take my family on a trip of a lifetime!
