OhioHealth Celebrates with Grove City at OhioHealth Grove City Community Festival
OhioHealth celebrated our relationship with the Grove City community at the OhioHealth Grove City Community Festival on a sunny Saturday last weekend. Held on the grounds of the new OhioHealth Grove City Methodist Hospital, the event provided a day of family fun activities including pumpkin painting, live performances, food trucks and inflatable fun with SuperGames. People were also able to create a commemorative tote bag, play games, visit the Columbus Blue Jackets Mobile Unit and have a Touch-a-Truck experience.
“We really wanted to create an event that celebrated 30 years of OhioHealth being a part of the Grove City community,” said Kara Coates, OhioHealth’s director of events. “This was all about families getting together with us to enjoy time together in a fun environment. We’re committed to this community and we wanted to have a special day to celebrate that we are going to continue to connect the people of Grove City to their best health.”
Event attendees were also able to take tours of OhioHealth Grove City Methodist Hospital, which opens at 7 a.m. on October 3.
Another aspect of the Community Festival was a community art project called “A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words.” Illustrator Andy J. Pizza, who lives and works in Columbus, drew a black and white mural that included community highlights like the historic Grant-Sawyer Home, the Windsor Park baseball water tower, the new hospital, the library and community members and pets. Everyone was invited to help finish the custom piece of art by coloring in sections of the mural with paint pens. When completed, the mural will be on permanent display in the main lobby of Grove City Methodist Hospital.
Attendees enjoyed performances from a variety of local organizations including:
- Brookpark Middle School Choir
- Singer, Cierra Lee
- Comedy Juggler, Matt Jergens
- Singer, Becca Roffe
- “Groovin’ with Grove City” cardio aerobics classes
The program was emceed by 10TV meteorologists Jeff Booth and Ross Caruso, as well as 10TV morning anchor Angela An.
