Little Lake, MI – April 13th, 2016 – It was the very first ModelTowners Home Team Show with new host Mike Plourde! He brought you the scoop on everything ModelTowner from the famous Throttle Bar & Grill in Little Lake, MI. Mike had an awesome snack called the “Nuts & Bolts” appetizer platter. It included onion rings, chicken strips and wings, potato wedges, and a bunch of other delicious appetizers!
His guest for the very first edition of the ModelTowners Home Team Show with Mike Plourde was Darcia Mattson. She is a tennis coach at Gwinn High School and is active throughout the Gwinn School District. Their first topic on today’s show was actually the weather! The recent snowy, cold weather that we’ve had has put a damper on local spring sports like softball, baseball, and tennis. Mike and Darcia then moved on to talk about how she got introduced to tennis when she was younger and what it’s like now to coach a high school team. Darcia is a huge proponent of girls sports in schools, and she discussed how she helped bring more girls sports to Gwinn. Finally, they wrapped up the show talking about a local bond issue vote that is coming up. The bond vote will have a big impact on the Gwinn School District, and she and Mike talked about how it effects Gwinn residents.
