Annual Harvest Celebration


The Annual Harvest Celebration is typically held in the fall of the year. A big thank you to our 2018 committee for putting on such a beautiful event. A great meal was served by RCO of Rockford, with desserts donated by Gloria Fisher. Many items were purchased and donated from the Mendon, Rockford and Willshire areas for the silent auction. The silent auction proceeds are used for the annual Parkway High School scholarships. The traditional LBCF Director’s box was auctioned off by the guest speaker, Clista Hellwarth.

Clista Hellwarth is the daughter of Garrett and Judy Hellwarth. She is a Parkway graduate, LBCF scholarship recipient, Parkway track standout, former Miss Grand Lake Festival Queen, and Miss Ohio Participant. She attends St Francis College in Ft Wayne and is studying early childhood education. Thanks to Clista for speaking about her experiences and sharing her musical talent.
