Haliburton Highlands Health Services CEO Paul Rosebush is set to leave his post at the end of August. On Tuesday, Aug. 14, residents of Hyland Crest long-term-care home in Minden gave Rosebush a special goodbye party in the Fireplace Lounge.
The following is a speech given by Wilfred Ackerblade, president of the residents’ council.
Mr. Paul Rosebush
I would like to thank Paul for all the service he’s given us over the past three and a half years. He’s been a real good person for the job. One of the main things I’d like to talk about is how much we all appreciated it when he got the cold air into where they serve the food. It’s really wonderful to have because there are so many volunteers for music and singing and for bingo and tea party that the dining room would get very hot. I enjoyed very much him coming to speak with me personally about my ideas to improve the home. He even came to my room to talk to me about some of them. Since Paul has been here everything is better. We all wish him the very best in his new position and we will miss him. His will be hard shoes to fill.
Here’s how we see Mr. Paul Rosebush
