Holiday open house kicks off hospital’s season

The women were especially interested in a tiny musical train that circled through a tunnel in an Evergreen brand decoration.

Mary Finkenbinder went to the open house at St. Mary's Hospital Gift Shop for a chance to reconnect with old acquaintances.

She used to work at the Jefferson City hospital but then she moved away.
