Foodie Friday: 7 New Ways to Eat Hard-Boiled Eggs

Before treat-filled plastic eggs became the Easter bunny’s standard delivery, kids dyed hard-boiled eggs, and the bunny had to “hop to” to make sure they were hidden within an hour of when the kids would find them so that the eggs would stay cool enough for safe eating later.

National Health Care Volunteer Week: Spotlight on Dorothy Rainey

It’s National Health Care Volunteer Week! At Gwinnett Medical Center volunteers can be found driving the courtesy cart to take visitors to their cars on rainy days, staffing the gift shops, answering questions as greeters in the guest lounges, and much more.
