Dr. Gwendolyn Kines Day in Terrell, Texas

Terrell Mayor Hal Richards reads the proclamation to Dr. Kines
in front of a standing room only crowd.

In July 2007, I posted a picture of my dentist office. My title was Best Dentist in Terrell, it was about my dentist Dr. Gwendolyn Kines.

Last night was the City Council meeting and since my life is so exciting I decided to go see what was going on. To my surprise (and Dr. Kines) they were leading off the meeting by recognizing the work Dr. Kines does in the community. Mayor Hal Richards read a proclamation declaring March 18, 2009 Dr. Gwendolyn Kines day in Terrell, Texas.

Here are a few stories about Dr. Kines and some of the work she does in Terrell. These all have appeared in the Terrell Tribune over the last few years.

I met Tricia, a reporter from Tribune, and owner of Tricia's POV. I am sure she will have a story in the Tribune about the proclamation from the Mayor. If it gets posted online, I will provide the link.

UPDATED: Tricia's story is now posted at the Terrell Tribune Online, City honors local dentist.

After the recognition of Dr. Kines, the Council went about its regular business. I will look for Tricia's story on that also.

I will post the results of the bake sale tomorrow morning.
