Starting the new year off in a joyous and appreciative way, employees of Wellspring in Bethlehem gathered on January 14 to celebrate fellow colleagues who reached service milestones in 2014. Wellspring, a nonprofit psychotherapeutic and educational center, honored 13 employees for reaching significant milestones in their years of service, some marking as many as 25 years of employment with the organization. Staff members gathered to celebrate the anniversaries and to recognize their years of dedication and commitment to Wellspring.
