Annual Harvest Celebration

18th Annual Harvest Celebration Invitation

The Annual Harvest Celebration was held on October 20, 2019. A big thank you to our 2019 committee for putting on such a beautiful event. A wonderful 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, Jordan Thompson. We’d like to thank the highest bidder, Loren Shindeldecker, for contributing to the scholarship fund.

Jordan Thompson is a Parkway graduate who considers Rockford his home. He played football for the Panther’s and went on to play four years for the Ohio University in Athens, Ohio. Through hard work and determination Jordan found himself playing in the NFL for the Detroit Lions. Jordan spoke of these experiences and how he had the opportunity to be a cast member of the HGTV show, While You Were Out.
