For a unique and festive twist on the New Year’s revelry, First Night State College is offering fun for the whole family and a celebration of the arts. First Night State College, located in the heart of downtown State College, is a production of the Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts and is a great way to get a healthy start on the New Year.
“It is with great pleasure that we announce this year's Healthy Resolutions partnership with Mount Nittany Health” shares Festival Executive Director, Rick Bryant. “Together we are encouraging the community's participation in small changes for better health in 2022.”
“Since its inception in 1994, First Night State College has promoted a fun, unique and healthy celebration of the New Year’s holiday,” noted Bryant. “Mount Nittany Health wants to encourage New Year's resolutions that support health and wellness by making small, but meaningful, changes. For tips on how to reduce stress, switch to healthier beverages, and incorporate movement into your daily routine, stop by the Mount Nittany Health Booth at First Night or visit firstnightstatecollege.com/healthy-resolutions."
"Mount Nittany Health is pleased to sponsor Healthy Resolutions at First Night," says Kathleen Rhine, president and CEO, Mount Nittany Health. "This event is a wonderful example of our mission, Healthier People. Stronger Community, in action. We look forward to celebrating the New Year in this fun, healthy way, and adopting new health and wellness resolutions alongside our community.”
"On behalf of the providers and staff of Mount Nittany Health, I would be remiss if I didn't stress that our community is still experiencing high levels of COVID-19 transmission and that the impact on our health system has been great. We encourage everyone to get vaccinated and celebrate safely by wearing a mask, social distancing and practicing good hand hygiene.”
Join Mount Nittany Health at the Mayor Welch Plaza outside the State College Borough building and warm up station where, Mount Nittany Health representatives will be on hand to help revelers write down their healthy resolutions for 2022. “Inside the lobby, people will be able to tie their personal, handwritten healthy resolutions to the tail of a rising First Night Phoenix, one of our most popular Resolutions Sculptures,” said Rick Bryant. “The flaming, fiery Phoenix represents rebirth by continually emerging from its own ashes to live again.”
