LAND O' LAKES - Plenty events celebrated the fall season in Land O' Lakes this weekend, but one of them was brand new to the area.
Land O' Lakes Arts hosted the first LOLA Art Harvest this year. The event on Saturday featured several local artists and a quilt show. People could even watch some of the artists demonstrate their craft.
"There are so many talented people in this area to feature what they do I think enlivens us all. We're always interested in what artists think and do. To see artists demonstrating and showing their work is always fun and interesting, you actually get to interact and talk with them," said LOLA Program Director Wendy Powalisz.
The community garden also joined in the event and showcased paintings throughout the area. There was also free samples of pumpkin soup made right from the pumpkins in the garden.
Powalisz says she hopes the event will be even bigger and better next year.
WOODRUFF - Ascension Wisconsin Spirit Medical Transport hosted a fun-filled day for family and friends on Saturday.
This comes about five months after one of its helicopters crashed, killing three Spirit employees.
Regional manager Charles Kotke said those men were in mind today,
"Today is a day of bringing people together, as well as a celebration of our 25 year anniversary," said Kotke. "This team did an amazing job getting us back to caring for our patients and doing what we need to do to care of our community."
Flight paramedics showed off the aircrafts to people and the helicopter was a big hit.
"They definitely like to look at the aircrafts. See how we transport patients from point A to point B," said Northern Region Supervisor Ryan Short.
Next Saturday, Spirit is celebrating with more associates. The second part of the celebration will be in Stevens Point.
