Interestingly, the exact opening date is not known. While one document mentions a scheduled opening date of May 1, a January newspaper article said Rogers had been open for six months, which puts the opening in late June or early July.</p>

<p>That&rsquo;s just one small part of Rogers&rsquo; history that will be celebrated this year as we mark the 110th Anniversary of the organization&rsquo;s founding.</p>

<p>Here are some of the activities planned for this spring and summer:</p>

<ul>
    <li>
    <p>Employees and medical staff are invited to participate in an essay contest: What would you like Dr. Rogers to know about Rogers today? Watch for details soon.</p>
    </li>
    <li>
    <p>Ice cream socials are planned to take us all back to another era.</p>
    </li>
    <li>
    <p>Employees will get to select a gift, complete with special anniversary logo.</p>
    </li>
    <li>
    <p>A continuing education (CE) event, &ldquo;Harnessing the Power of CBT&rdquo; for our referral partners features Rogers experts on cognitive behavioral therapy in treatment, an important part of Rogers history.</p>
    </li>
    <li>
    <p>A look back at how mental health and addiction treatment has changed over the past 110 years</p>
    </li>
    <li>
    <p>Videos, games, social media posts, a history display, and more!</p>
    </li>
</ul>

<p>The celebration will begin in May and continue through the summer months.</p>
