Pilot Mountain Business Council's First Networking Event

On August 27, 2019, Mountain Valley Hospice & Palliative Care hosted Pilot Mountain Business Council's first networking event. It was great to have so many business managers and owners of Pilot Mountain come together to network, enjoy good food, learn more about Mountain Valley Hospice, and make new connections. Mountain Valley Hospice had a wonderful presentation about the services they provide, recognized staff and volunteers, and honored the all veterans who attended the event. This was a very special evening! Thank you Mountain Valley Hospice & Palliative Care.
