Our mission at Genesee Health Plan extends beyond improving access to the health care system for our residents; it also includes bringing people together for the betterment of our community.”

Attendees will be able to have their photo taken with Princess Anna or Queen Elsa and participate in a sing-along. There will also be a princess parade, so attendees are encouraged to come dressed up in their favorite princess costume.
