Date: 04/13/2020

It was an amazing ride into work for all of us at Inland and Lakewood today - what a heartwarming gesture!

Thank you to Waterville’s police, fire and rescue departments, and the many other departments from around the region who lined our campus to honor healthcare workers as we drove in and out of work this morning.

“It was an emotional and humbling experience, to be thanked by our community partners who we consider heroes - who keep people safe and save lives,” said Terri Vieira, Inland/Lakewood president.
Waterville police chief, Joe Massey explained, “We wanted to show our support for Inland and Lakewood healthcare workers. We are all fighting COVID-19 together and we are grateful for everything Inland and Lakewood staff members are doing. This effort shows our solidarity and how much healthcare staff mean to us and our community.”

Thanks again to all who attended to show their support: Fire/EMS from Albion, Belgrade, China, Clinton, Fairfield, Oakland, Rome, Sidney, Waterville, and Winslow; Waterville and Winslow police departments and Kennebec County Sheriff’s Department; and Delta Ambulance.

Inland and Lakewood staff are deeply touched by your kindness and we thank you for all you do to serve our community. Together, we will get through this!
