“Determination that just won’t quit—that’s what it takes.”

Where’s Hank?  (The Christmas Edition)

 ‘Twas the holiday season and all through the hall,

One creature was stirring who’s five feet tall;

Decorations were hung ‘round the hospital with care, 

In hopes that Hank the frog soon would be there; 

He was dressed all in fur from his head to his feet, 

And he carried a bag full of sugary treats;

After spreading his cheer, he thought with delight, 

“Happy holidays to all, and to all a good night.”

Watch Hank’s hoppin’ holiday at Hancock Regional Hospital here.
