To our community and area businesses: Marietta Surgery Center recently celebrated 10 years of surgical care excellence with an open house and fundraiser for Lauren Payne, a local 9-year-old girl with an inoperable medical condition. The outpouring of support and generosity by the community and its businesses was nothing short of astounding. The physicians and staff of Marietta Surgery Center along with myself would like to personally thank everyone for their most generous donations. Thanks to you the benefit was a great success. You truly made it a very special day for Lauren and her family. If anyone wishes to help Lauren, donations can be sent to People's Bank, 138 Putnam St., Marietta, Ohio 45750, in care of "August Lauren Payne Benefit Fund" or dropped off at any Peoples Bank branch office.
