A celebration of the new Heritage Living Center in Park Rapids was held Tuesday afternoon. Residents and many people from the community came to take a look at the new facility.

"This project demonstrates the power of collaboration," Executive Director Kurt Hansen said. "Several entities came together to create something to help build community. The substantial improvements to Heritage Living Center are already benefiting our residents and their families."

A dedication service was held in the area, then everyone headed to the hallway where the ribbon cutting took place. Afterwards cake and other goodies were served.

"We were so pleased with the turnout at our open house," Cleo Hartung, director of housing and community services, said. "Hundreds of people came, and it was so wonderful and memorable."
