Myrtles to celebrate 40 years


A lot of things have changed in 40 years, but some things still stay the same.

One constant in Columbia has been The Myrtles Nursing Center.

The Myrtles opened Jan. 14, 1979, as a 60-bed nursing center in the same location as it is now on Alberta Avenue. On July 25, there will be a 40th anniversary celebration.
