HGB plans to celebrate its history with community

Hayes Green Beach Memorial Hospital celebrates 80 years, just as Charlotte’s Sesquicentennial year is being recognized in many ways.  Milestones inspire us to look around and ask when some of our wonderful assets appeared on the scene and who are the people behind the names we see. For example, the four founders of our community can easily be recalled with a simple walk around the Courthouse Square museum block, reading the four street signs of Cochran, Lawrence, Bostwick, and Harris.

Marilyn Dobbs: Celebrating a life of generosity and compassion

To label Marilyn Dobbs as your average human being would be a total misrepresentation of who she really was in the eyes of those who knew her best.

According to her husband Ed of more than 30 years, she believed there were two types of people in this world … Tiggers and Eeyores.

“Tiggers are those who never feel sorry for themselves and never quit and Eeyores are the complainers and always give up,” he states. “Marilyn was definitely a Tigger.”
