Last week, Signature Healthcare of Trimble County celebrated the achievements of six individuals with ties to the facility, inducting the “Hometown Heroes” into the Hall of Fame Café.

More than 40 of Signature Healthcare’s 65 homes nationwide are participating in the program in which employees, residents and volunteers are honored for their contributions. Because the cafeteria is typically the center of activity in assisted care facilities, inductees are recognized with plaques displayed prominently in the room; thus the “café” designation.

“We are here to recognize not only their achievements, but also their influences,” administrator Earl Goff said during the Sept. 30 celebration.

From Margo Harmon’s dislike of turkeys after being raised on a farm around the birds to former Kentucky State Police trooper Loyd Alexander’s ability to cook “the best fried chicken you ever put in your mouth,” according to his daughter, special memories and reasons were revealed as to why those honored were deserving of this designation.

“When people walk in [to the dining room] they will see this wall and know that Trimble County has some very special people and we are blessed to have them here with us,” Goff said near the end of the program.
