Your November update from the Center of Hope

In this month’s edition, the Center of Hope celebrates the fall season with a trip to the apple orchard and seeing friends at HarvestFest 2022, also meet Executive Director Pam Carey, and get ready for #GivingTuesday.

Enjoying the fall weather

It’s not really fall until you take a visit to Curran’s Apple Orchard. On October 14 over 50 staff members and participants took a field trip to Curran’s. Everyone got a donut and enjoyed visiting with the animals and interacting with the different activities like tic-tac-toe, climbing the big straw pile, doing the maze and the corn tunnel.


The Barbara Olson Center of Hope hosted our fourth annual HarvestFest friendraiser on October 6 at Prairie Street Brewing Co. READ MORE
