Edgewood Happenings this Thursday 4/21

edgewood-logo1 copyJust a few things to add to your calendar for Thursday, April 21st in Edgewood

Edgewood Community Think Tank is noon at Woods Edge Golf Course. The catered meal from the Edgewood Locker is a baked potato bar for $7. Bring a friend and find out what’s going on in your Edgewood Community!

We are also hosting a bus tour and they are expected to arrive at Think Tank at 12:30pm. I can’t give any more details because it’s a surprise! So maybe if you could step outside and tidy the place up that would be great!

AND there is a home junior high track meet to attend. Ryan Wade, Eastern Iowa’s Man of the Year for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, will be showing up at the track meet after his run from Elkader. Visit OneStepLLS.org and track his 250 mile journey from across Iowa to raise $175,000 for a cure. The Ed-Co FBLA will be presenting him a $4000 check from the Pennies for Patients Campaign held in January.
