A plan that all started on a paper napkin, broke ground on a blue sky, brisk Tuesday morning.
Burwell Community Memorial Health Center held their groundbreaking ceremony for the new facility.
Opening comments were presented by Dr. Timothy Garner of Burwell and a member of the CMHC Board of Directors.
Sen. Adrian Smith was unable to attend, but a letter from him was read at the ceremony. In Sen. Smiths letter he said to the members and faculty of CMHC, I have the greatest appreciation for your hard work.
The ground site is on the north edge of town on a field originally owned by Burwell Native Hank Thoene.
