Most of the setup for the big event on Saturday was done the previous afternoon.

A collection of old BMC photos as well as recent photos by William Haun were exhibited in the out patient department (OPD) on Friday. Several past BMC doctors and nurses that were featured in the photos have returned to celebrate the 50th anniversary. You can see many of the photos in the Media section of this website (on second slideshow screen under “From the BMC Scrapbook”).

Drummers followed along and kept up a constant rhythm to help motivate the volunteers.
