Mayo Clinic celebrates Heritage Days


ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) -- Mayo Clinic Heritage Days kicked off Monday with a reading of the clinic's history.

Heritage Days celebrates the history, culture and values of the clinic during the year of the 150th anniversary of service to patients.

Dozens gathered in the Joseph building auditorium Monday at noon to hear a reading of the clinic's history, accompanied by a slide show presentation of photos from days gone by.

The history was read by Rochester Mayor Ardell Brede, Sister Cashel Weiler, Billie Needham, and John Murphy.

Music also returned to the Rochester carillon to celebrate Heritage Days. A special carillon concert took place at noon on Annenberg Plaza.

For the first time in many years, the "Big Ben" chime on the carillon sounded on the quarter hour.

Hymns will be played at 6 p.m. and 9 p.m.

The chimes are best known for being on the Big Ben clock in London.
