Ribbon cutting

Sam Beyer, 5, keeps a firm grip on the scissors with his grandmother, practice director Annina Rabbitt. Impatiently he waits for the end of the dedication prayer. Just give him the word, and he’s ready to cut that red, ceremonial ribbon. A patient since he was a baby, Sam was a special guest at the event to announce the opening of the new Seton Health Pediatric Center in Clifton Park. He even got to miss his morning pre-school class.

Afterwards, between bites of scone, Sam decides he liked cutting the ribbon better than eating the tasty treat. “Because I got to got use scissors,” he says. Sam’s little sister Lily, 3, who’s not as proficient with scissors, had to settle for just the scone experience. After his second bakery treat, Sam announces he’s ready to go home and watch “Cars.” He had enough danger for one day.
