This Saturday was very busy at Smiles for Life! The day began at 6:30am with many of us working together to set up for our yard sale for Helping Haitian Angels. Dr. Rockey, Dr. McIntyre, Jody, Becky, and Riley set up the signs and tents and got to work.
Tons of our wonderful patients and members of our community donated items to our yard sale, and we were all amazed at the generosity. We filled our front lot with everything from arm chairs, to a pool table, to crock pots, clothes, and jewelry.
It wasn’t long before people started showing up to check out the items. Right from the start, we had many generous donations.
By the end of the day, we collected almost $1000 to go toward our goal of raising $5000 for an x-ray machine to put in the dental clinic in Haiti! All of the items that were left were donated to Mercy House or Goodwill. We want to give a huge thanks to everyone who donated as well as to everyone who came by and supported the sale. It was a giant success, and it took all of us coming together to make it happen.
Following the yard sale, the team at Smiles for Life then prepared for the celebration of our new doctor, Dr. Kelsey Rockey! Everyone met up at the Bridgewater Mini-Golf Course for free mini-golf and ice cream.
Everyone loved the yummy ice cream sundaes. What toppings do you like?
Amy and Erica helped serve up the treats, and everyone got to enjoy the mini-golf while getting to know Dr. Rockey.
Katie and Cathy were in charge of selling raffle tickets for our “By the Sea” quilt raffle to benefit the dental clinic we are setting up at the Helping Haitian Angels orphanage in Haiti.
Serena had a great time with her grandson and all the other kids while they lined up their shots.
Carl—Dr. Rockey’s husband—and John Miller enjoyed a chat while they waited their turn for the next hole.
Dr. Mac and Marie are having a great time. Do you think Marie will land the ball in the hole?
John Miller of Bridgewater was our pro golfer with his hole in one!
Cathy and Katie are a great hygiene team and a great golf team. When these two get together, good things happen.
All ages enjoyed this beautiful mini-golf course.
Dr. Whiting, Dr. Rockey, and Dr. McIntyre are ready to enjoy a round of golf. These three work great together—in the office or on the golf course.
Everybody had a great time enjoying the last bit of summer and spending time with our staff and patients outside of the office. We are so happy to have Dr. Rockey here. She is an incredible doctor and person who always makes sure her patients have the highest level of care. Our whole team is looking forward to working with her for years to come.
