Mayor Lloyd Winnecke and other state officials were on hand to join in the festivities. Mayor Winnecke even proclaimed today VNA Plus Day in Evansville.
The nursing service was originally established in 1888, and they say it's the only remaining independent, free-standing, not-for-profit home care and hospice agency.
"There were a few key community leaders," said Executive Director Gloria Horton, "that had a vision for helping the needy people to go out into their homes to provide the care they need."
VNA Plus provides care to 21 counties in the Tri-State.
