FAIRBURY — The Spring Salad Festival of the Jefferson Community Health Center Auxiliary will be held on Thursday, May 19, at the Fairbury Elks Club. The Salad Festival is a fund-raiser for the JCHC Auxiliary which has been a community event since 1965.
“The Salad Festival has a long history in our community, and has been a wonderful fund-raiser for the JCHC Auxiliary,” said Lana Likens, director of public relations at Jefferson Community Health Center. “It is also something that has provided wonderful food and fellowship, and our community has enjoyed.”
The salad festival will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tickets will be $6 in advance, and $6.50 at the door. Advance tickets will be available at several local businesses in May.
The Spring Salad Festival is the main fund-raising event of the auxiliary. The auxiliary provides scholarships to students entering medical fields, provides Christmas gifts for residents of the Gardenside long-term care at Jefferson Community Health Center, and provides volunteer help at JCHC in a variety of projects.
