Little Lake, MI – May 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!
