By Allison Olimb of The Press PARK RIVER, N.D. -- First Care Health Center's annual Har- vest Fest celebration is right around the comer featuringa very fitting theme. The 22nd annual event will feature "Seasons of Change" and with it, a few changes to the event as .well. This year Harvest Fest will take place on Saturday, Sept. 16 at the Park River Coliseum in an evening filled with food, games, and a basket auction followed by a dance to "B Unit." The night kicks off at 5:30 p.m. Rather than the traditional meal, the evening will feature a spread of appetizers catered by Jim's Super Valu including a pork loin carving station with mini buns, cocktail smokies with red sauce, deviled eggs, cowboy caviar and tortilla chips, fruit kabobs, bread/toast table with bruschetta, spinach dip, and more. Event coordinator Ruth Jelinek, First Care Health Center devel- opment/fundraising, said that they are encouraging more of a mobile event so that guests can visit, play games including plinko and balloon burst, and shop the Wine Grab and the new additions of Buy it Now and Restaurant Row where the purchase of restaurant gift cards can directly benefit the hos- pital fundraising efforts. As last year featured a "Pump- kin Patch," this year will bring with it a "Winter Wonderland." The Coliseum will be decked out in winter drcor and the Pumpkin Patch as been replaced by a Snow- man Booth where people can find a variety of snowman themed items for purchase. With each item, Harvest Fest goers can pay the total with the clerks at the end of the night. Ruth said that they are always looking to introduce something new, offering new opportunities for Harvest Fest goers to get involved in the fundraising. "You will walk home with something and you will have .helped us," she said. "The people in this area are so gen- erous, so caring." As the event has been going on for more than 20 years, they have had a variety of ideas introduced throughout the years and this year ~s no exception. She said that many of the younger employees at First Care came to her with some suggestions and they looked to in- corporate this fresh take on a clas- sic tradition.
