“I commend all of our employees who have selflessly dedicated time to volunteering to assist in events throughout our community. It is through these volunteers’ efforts that we have been able to live out the Team Terrebonne Mission to improve the quality of life and promote healthy lifestyles in our community,” said Phyllis Peoples, President and CEO of TGMC. “I look forward to continuing these efforts throughout the next year and encourage our community to get involved and continue to participate in the numerous activities and events that our community has to offer,” Peoples added.
