Barbie Ward-Thomas, Food Service Director at Gwinn Schools

Little Lake, MIMay 4th, 2016 – Mike Plourde was joined at the Throttle Bar & Grill in Little Lake, MI for another great Gwinn ModelTowners Home Team Show! Mike had Barbie Ward-Thomas, the Food Service Director for Gwinn Schools, on today’s show, and it was all about Gwinn! Before Mike even sat down for the show, he filled-up on the Throttle’s delicious “Nuts & Bolts” appetizer which features chicken strips, fried mushrooms, potato wedges, and a bunch of other awesome items!

There are a ton of great programs offered in the Gwinn School District, and Barbie talked with Mike about how her programs help keep kids fed in our area. She also described her 4th annual Wellness Fair and Chili Cook-off this past February! It started off as a small event, but now as grown to over 30 vendors! Last year, the Throttle even took home the win for the best chili in Gwinn!

They also talked about a special program at the K.I. Sawyer Elementary School that was made possible thanks to an extremely generous donation from a local individual that paid for an entire summer’s worth of activities for the local children. Barbie Ward-Thomas also discussed with Mike their need for volunteers in the Gwinn School District. All of these great programs wouldn’t be possible without the generous donations of local individuals, and that’s what makes the Gwinn School District great!

A special thanks goes out to all the amazing sponsors of the ModelTowners Home Team Show! Thanks to the Throttle in Little Lake for hosting the show and providing a great meal and an amazing venue! Thanks to Goodwins Auto of Skandia! They’re your place for first-class auto service! Honor Credit Union, with locations in Gwinn, Negaunee, and Marquette! Stop in today for FREE checking! Bergdahls Equipment in Skandia is a great sponsor of the show, and they can fix just about any type of equipment, big or small! Also, thanks to Wally at Southside Automotive! Located just three miles South of Harvey, Wally and the gang can get your car running like new again! See the fine folks at the Gwinn/Sawyer Veterinary Clinic, where they care for your pets just as you would! Ace Hardware in Gwinn is your one-stop shop for housing/building material, hardware, paint, and so much more! We’d also like to thank Larry’s Family Foods in Gwinn! See them for the freshest produce, finest meats, and anything else on your shopping list!
