BLANCHESTER — The First National Bank of Blanchester held a successful 10th Fall Party in the Park on Friday, Sept. 30 to benefit the Blanchester Emergency Medical Services.
Food, drink, music and face painting are always highlights of the party. Many of Blanchester Emergency Medical Services (Blan EMS) first responders attended.
This event has grown from a charity fundraiser into an event that truly brings the community together as FNB opens Penquite Park each fall and spring for the Blanchester community.
FNB staff and community volunteers helped make the event a success. FNB thanks the businesses who graciously gave in support of the event including Rajai Elfar from Gold Star Chili of Blanchester (hot dogs, buns, cheese and chili); Ron Johnson of Ron’s Place (hamburgers); Mockabee Motors (two free oil changes); Blanchester Movie Theater (popcorn); Dan and Lisa Beach of Beach Photography and Vide (cash donation); and Curless Printing (print ads).
FNB also extends special thanks to the Blanchester Marion Township Fire Department; Tom Dazey of DIBs, LLC (grill master); Leftside Entertainment (DJ) Jeremy Lansing; Colleen Collins (face painter) of Faces by Lisa; Curt Bandow and Butch Richards, grill masters; and the FNB staff and numerous other friends and family for making this event possible. Participants had a great time supporting the Blanchester homecoming festivities, the community and the beloved first responders of the Blanchester Emergency Medical Services.
