We are grateful to Lane Southern Orchards for their continued support of our patients and their loved ones,” said Ellen Terrell, Chief Development Officer for Navicent Health Foundation.

Along with the corn maze, the festival on October 19 will include an array of family-friendly events, such as harvest hayrides, face painting, a costume contest and bounce houses.

“The new Beverly Knight Olson Children’s Hospital, Navicent Health opened in February and everyone at Lane Southern Orchards is so proud to have played a small part in bringing this magnificent facility to our middle Georgia community.
