There are lots of exciting things happening around TLC this time of year and our busy season is in full swing! It’s a great time to be outside and to take advantage of our many outdoor recreation options. From sand volleyball to paddle boats and bonfires, we have so many fun options to choose from for your next event.
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!
Nearly everyday here at The Leadership Center, we tell our staff that the work we do here is important. It is special. We create a place where moments that matter can happen. Our guests tell us that quite often as well. And for that, we love what we do.
Earlier this month, we had a very special opportunity. Our staff got to serve the Grothen Family who gathered together to celebrate the 65 wedding anniversary of Paul and Jeanette. They spent the weekend with us reminiscing, laughing and enjoying time spent together while we did the cooking, cleaning and laundry. It was such a treat.
“If you are traveling for an event and have special dietary needs (i.e. gluten or lactose intolerance, vegetarian, special religious observations) do not hesitate to call and inquire about the menu. Often times, kitchens are happy to make accommodations when possible. Giving them a call may give them the time it takes to make accommodations too.”
