We had such a treat today! Jon & Taryn Vanderford came out to learn more about Prairie Plains Resource Institute and The Leadership Center for our upcoming participation in Go Big Give.
Jan Whitney, one of the co-founders of Prairie Plains Resource Institute, and TLC’s Admin & Event Coordinator, Micheala Olsen, discussed our upcoming event “An Afternoon Fishing on the Prairie.” This pre-give event is for the upcoming Go Big Give: Day of Giving. It will include prairie tours, tours of The Leadership Center, fishing (bring your own poles or use one of ours (limited available), paddle boating, kayaking, and canoeing. There will also be a bonfire where you can roast hot dogs (donated by the great Thompson Company) and s’mores! It’s a family friendly event open to all with a free will donation. All funds raised will go towards the endeavors of both non-profits. Computers will be set up in the lobby to do online giving. We will also have offline donation information available!
Should there be inclement weather, the event will be held inside at The Leadership Center. Tours will still be available. A slide show will be shown of the prairie. We’ll still have food and games. So please plan to join us!
We so enjoyed having Jon & Taryn with us. The interview is to air on Thursday, April 27th. Thank you for allowing us to share our stories! (Click here to see the interview.)
