CHARISM Community Center recently held its 10th Annual Summer Fest with more than 60 adults and youth attending to enjoy the evening's activities. Our heartfelt thanks to the community for its support to make this year's annual Summer Fest celebration an enjoyable and festive evening for our participants.

Board of director members David Tehle and Kay Leonhart were on hand to cook and serve free hot dogs and hamburgers for the crowd. Volunteers from Job Service of North Dakota, Fargo AGLOW, Dental Access, Fargo Park District, Dakota Boys Ranch and local youth helped to run the carnival games, hand out prizes and coordinate the tie-dyeing activities.

A special thanks to these area businesses who donated items to help make CHARISM's Summer Fest a success: Target, Pan-O-Gold Baking Co., Super Valu, McDonald's, Krispy Kreme, M&H, Fryn' Pan, TGI Friday's, Schlotzky's Deli, Kroll's Diner, Space Aliens, Mexican Village, Northtown Grill and to local clown Debbie "la Ditzy" Fowler for making balloon animals and bringing much laughter and joy to the children.
