Vet Clinic Open House - 1996 - 15 years ago

News of 15 years ago in the Oak Springs Enterprise - July 1996

Bevins Vet Clinic holds Open House

Dr. Jennifer Bevins, DVM, hosted an Open House at the Bevins Veterinary Clinic on the grounds of The Bevins Stables and Trail Rides east of Oak Spring the afternoon of July 15th. Over one hundred people reportedly passed through the facility during the afternoon event. 

'Doc Evans,' long time Oak Springs veterinarian, was on hand to remind everyone that 'Doc Bevins' was now the veterinary in the area for large animals such as cattle and horses. As he moves closer to retirement, Doc Evans is taking only small animals as new patients. 

In her remarks, Doc Bevins made a point to thank those who were most instrumental in getting her to and starting her practice. These included her parents, Bart and Diane Bevins, The Bevins Trust, Doc Evans and her professors, fellow students, intern supervisors and others at the University of Missouri veterinary program.

"May each of us have a Homeplace to hold onto, if only in our minds."
