Good Samaritan Society - Mohall to
celebrate Founder’s Day September 28th

Good Samaritan Society – Mohall will celebrate Founder’s Day on Sunday, September 28th. The day will begin at 9:00 a.m. with a worship service led by Pastor Todd Olson in the Center’s dining room.

At 2:00 p.m., the Moen Family of Upham, North Dakota, (pictured above) will provide musical entertainment. Coffee and snacks will be served at 3:00 p.m. The public is invited to attend all events.

The birthplace of the Evangelical Lutheran Good Samaritan Society is here in North Dakota. The organization was founded by Rev. August “Dad” Hoeger, who had a vision to provide care and services to seniors and other people in need. The Good Samaritan Society was incorporated on September 29th, 1922, and opened its first home, which was a six-room rented house, on March 1st, 1923, in Arthur, North Dakota.

Over the years, the Good Samaritan Society has grown from serving a handful of people to being the nation’s largest not-for-profit provider of senior care and services. Today, the Society operates more than 240 locations in 24 states.

The Good Samaritan Society’s goal is to emulate the traits modeled by Jesus; specifically the traits of compassion, honesty, perseverance, joy, humility, acceptance, courage, and love. It is their obligation to strive to apply these traits in all that they do. This is the Good Samaritan Society Way.
