6/27/2012, 7 p.m.

Ambassadors from the Freeport Area Chamber of Commerce will be on hand Wednesday, June 27 to cut the ribbon on the renovations at the FHN Leonard C. Ferguson Cancer Center.

The ribbon cutting will be at 7 a.m. at the Center, 1163 W. Stephenson Street, Freeport, followed by a brief tour and refreshments. A formal, public open house and dedication for the addition will be held in the late summer or early fall of this year.

The FHN Foundation will have order forms at the event for special brick pavers to be inscribed in honor or memory of a loved one. The pavers will line the walkways of the new Healing Garden at the Cancer Center. Orders received before July 1, 2012 will be installed this year. (Orders taken after July 1 will be installed in August 2013.) For more information on the FHN Foundation's brick paver campaign, visit the FHN Foundation page at or call 815-599-6900.
