C0UmlESY PHOTO STAFF REPORT Saint Stephen's Episcopal Church will dedicate a garden on ]uly 10 in memory of longtime Wimbedey physician Bill Greer, who died in February last year. After 23 years as a U.S. Navy doctor, Greer opened a medical practice in the valley in 1978 and for several years was the areas only doctor. He became Deer Creek Rehabilitation Center's first medical director when the facility opened and saw patients at his private practice in the afternoon until his retirement in 2004 at the age of 80. "It seemed that once a week a Deer Creek nurse would call Bill in the middle of the night, and he would jump out of bed without complaint and drive over there," said Carlene Greer, his wife of over 60 years. The church will dedicate the Greer Family Cloister at a ceremony immediately following the 10:30 a.m. worship service at the church, 6000 FM 3237. A reception will follow at McArthur Hall. Animals across Hays County are getting special attention this month. Through July 22, Pet Prevent a Litter (PALS) is joining with the San Marcos Regional Animal Shelter and Adoption Center to offer Hays County residents free pet spay and neutering options. This process is a safe surgical procedure which provides significant health benefits to your pet: Prevents pregnancy and its complications. Eliminates the heat cycle. Reduces the urge to roam. Reduces the possibility of disease in the reproductive system. Eliminates testicular tumors and reduces prostate gland problems. In cats, reduces territorial marking behavior. Hays County continues to experience a serious pet overpopulation problem and reducing the number animals is critical to saving lives. Contact PALS at 754-PALS or PAL@ to schedule an appointment for your pet. On Friday, July 15, PAWS Shelter and Humane Society is hosting a 25th Anniversary Open House and Adopt- a-thon Weekend which begins with a ribbon cutting ceremony by the Kyle Chamber of Commerce at 4:30 p.m with refreshments following.
