Our first time having a Third Thursday at Hy-Vee went extremely well. Everybody had a great time!
Scott Kirby, Chef Carrie and fellow Hy-Vee employees organized a beer and food tasting for us. Some great combinations we would have never thought to try. Many YP’s said it was informative and interesting since that’s something they love to do.
After having the first part in the beautiful club room, we moved over to the Market Cafe for addition food and beverages.
Another big hit of the evening was Big Brothers Big Sisters staff recruiting teams for Bowl for Kids Sake. Shanon Henry and Josh Onken won $10 Hy-Vee gift cards for signing up to bowl for the kids. Congrats and thank you!
We look forward to next month’s March Madness Third Thursday at Boonie’s on the Avenue!
YPN is assembling a team for the upcoming Big Brothers Big Sisters Bowl for Kids Sake onMarch 29 and March 30 at Plamor Lanes in Muscatine. Please contact Lindsey Phillips atgro.yenitacsumnull@spillihpl for details or to sign up for the YPN team.
