The very first Native Fall Harvest, held at the Native American Community Service Center (NACSC), was a triumph! The event brought over 500 community members through the doors of the NACSC where they were able to tour the building and learn about the services provided that help to improve the lives of Native American individuals and families. Visitors received passports prior to their building tours and received passport stamps and free giveaways from all participating organizations within the NACSC. Visitors whose passports were full were eligible to win fabulous prizes such as massage gift certificates, hotel stays and Native American jewelry.
Giving the event a Farmer's Market feel, Native American vendors offered Fry Bread and arts and crafts for sale outside and visitors received free mini massages and played various Wii games.
Highlights of the event included visits by Daryl Lynn Jay, the new Miss Indian Arizona for 2010 and Baxter the Bobcat from The Arizona Diamondbacks who both took pictures and interacted with community members. The Native American Community Service Center thanks all of the volunteers who helped make this event possible and is proud to have hosted a successful event that will benefit the community!
