On Januray 19, roughly 100 community members’, family, friends and patients came together from across the roaring fork valley to celebrate something special. This day marked Dr. Richard Herrington’s 40th year as a physician in Carbondale. The scene at Roaring Fork Family Practice was incredible. Barely a place to sit, the hallways lined with well-wishers, laughing smiling faces, all gathered to celebrate such a wonderful achievement. The packed house on a Monday night was a testament to Dr. Herrington’s dedication to the health and well-being of his patients and the people in the community.
