On April 6, Charles W. Bone was honored at the 2019 “Seed to Harvest” Spring Celebration for the Salvus Center, Inc. a faith-based primary care health center in Gallatin, Tennessee. Salvus seeks to reclaim the Biblical and historical commitment to care for poor and underprivileged patients so they can experience wholeness, wellness and healing. Joined by more than 300 guests, the annual event celebrated the volunteers and donors who have supported the center since its opening in 2006. All proceeds benefitted the center’s programs and future patients. Tennessee State Representative and Bone McAllester Norton attorney Johnny Garrett and his wife Kara Garrett served as event chairs.
In 2004, Bone was among the group of community leaders who founded Salvus Center to address the health care concerns for people who work and support their families but cannot afford health care and do not qualify for TennCare. After much planning and meeting, the Salvus Center started seeing patients in 2006 with the vision that every citizen in Sumner County would have access to affordable health care. Over the years, the center has served more than 62,000 patients.
Bone was introduced as the Honored Guest of the 2019 Spring Celebration Dinner by his daughter, Baylor Bone Swindell, who shared how her grandparents Nokes and Billy Bone established the family’s tradition of giving back to others in Sumner County.
