" FCHC Harvest brings in around $10,600 By Allison Olimb of The Press PARK RIVER, N.D. -- Friday the 13th ended up being a good night for First Care Health Center in Park River's annual Harvest Fest banquet and basket auction. This was a night of firsts for the hospital as it was a new date and a new location for the fundraiser. This year's banquet was held at the Park River Col- iseum. The larger location, donated by Paul Farup American Legion Post, proved beneficial as the majority of the seats were filled with those attending ham and baked potato meal catered by Jim's Super Valu. "We're really pleased with the location, the facil- ities, the date " FCHC Marketing and Develop- ment Coordinator Ruth Je- linek said. There still was room for more, but Jelinek said there were a few un- foreseen conflicts, namely a late harvest that no one could have predicted.

Britt Jacobson, co-manager of the market, said at the height, the market had 16 vendors, which filled up a good portion of the park where the market was held 5:30-6:30 p.m. every Thursday through the growing a quick workout with a re- warding afierburn. BodyPump, Robideaux said, is all resistance training, putting 900 reps in 55 minutes.

When Rylan Setness set out to reach the highest attainable rank in the Boy Scouts pro- gram he had to reach a final goal of demonstrating leader- ship by completing an exten- sive service project. He found inspiration in a place of min- istry and rest. The family of Marsha Axvig placed a bench near the bike path in Park River in front of Victory Free Lutheran Church following her passing in 2010. Not long after the bench was placed in 2011, Rylan decided to use his Eagle Scout project to highlight the location. The bench reads: "In loving memory of Marsha Axvig. Come unto Me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28" Now, thanks to Rylan's landscaping efforts, a stone walkway surrounded by woodchips and greenery leads from the bike path to the bench, which is surrounded by trees including two Hotwings Amur Maples which should, in time, display bright red seeds and a Prairie Torch Ohio Buckeye, which should turn Photos: Allison Olimb Above: The bench off of the bike path in Park River near Vic- tory Free Lutheran Church was placed there by the Axvig family in memory of Marsha Axvig.
