Vroom, vroom.

If you love to drool over shiny chrome and see the newest sets of wheels, as my husband does, check out the open house Sept. 6 at Big Barn Harley Davidson. From 11 a.m. til 10 p.m., you can browse their bikes. There’s a BBQ from 11-2 and live music begins at 1 p.m. They’ll have food and drink vendors til 10 p.m. too.

The best part of this event, (other than being free to attend, of course) is that the fun includes a blood drive! The Blood Center of Iowa will be there from 10 a.m. til 1 p.m. so you can donate blood. You can sign up ahead of time. As extra incentive, you can pick a gift that represents one of your favorite Iowa undergrad institutions.

Courtney Tompkins has been part of the DMU marketing team since Nov. 2005 and loves promoting a school she believes in so thoroughly. Proud daughter and patient of DMU alumni, Courtney knows, first-hand, that Des Moines University is doing a world of good. A fan of all outdoor festivals, fruity drinks and nearly all edibles, she has a hard time narrowing down her list of favorite places to go and things to do but lists the Iowa State Fair as an all-time fave. She loves her 8-minute commute to DMU from Urbandale, a suburb of Des Moines. She and husband Tyler are owned by three large dogs, Tonka, Tucker and Tank.
