Little Lake, MI – May 18th, 2016 –Summer was in the air for another edition of the Gwinn ModelTowners Home Team Show, and Mike Plourde had a great show! He welcomed two different guests to today’s show, but before he even sat down, the Throttle Bar & Grill in Little Lake, MI served him up their famous cod dippers basket! The cod dippers basket features a TON of crispy, golden fried cod pieces, your choice of potato, a roll, and even Mike’s favorite coleslaw!
The first guest on today’s ModelTowners Home Team Show was Connie Sather. She is a teacher in Gwinn, and she heads a couple of different programs. She leads the “Girls on the Move” Program and the “Girls Give Back” Program, and both of those activities are geared towards elementary school girls. The “Girls on the Move” Program meets once a month, and Connie leads the girls on a physical activity and also educates them on tough topics like drugs and self-confidence. Her other program, “Girls Give Back”, focuses on community service-type projects. “Girls Give Back” is a way to teach social responsibility and it’s also a way for young girls and parents to give back to a wonderful community.
For the second segment of today’s show, Mike welcomed back last week’s guest Barbie Ward-Thomas, the Food Service Director for Gwinn Schools. She was on last week to tell Mike about how her programs help keep kids fed throughout the Gwinn Schools. This week, she sat down with Mike to talk about how her program assists Connie’s activities. Thanks to a recent government grant, Barbie is able to provide some snacks and meals for free to programs in the Gwinn School District.
