Our inaugural Hutchinson Health Foundation Family Fun Night took place on November 30, 2023 in Library Square in downtown Hutchinson. And what a turnout we had! This free event featured a DJ, hot chocolate and cookies, Santa and Mrs. Claus as well as other characters, and a toy drive for McLeod County. Many thanks to local businesses who provided door prizes or entered our tree decorating contest. We can’t wait to do it again in 2024! Save the date – December 5!
