Fun stuff for tomorrow

May 14, 2010 —

Tomorrow (Saturday, May 15) there’s a few cool events I didn’t know about earlier to give you a heads up. But if your day is still unplanned, check these out!

You can check in at 9 a.m. for a 10 a.m. walk at the West Glen Town Center to raise money for the National Kidney Foundation! Or there’s a food festival at Blank Park Zoo. Free to get in if you have a membership or it’s included in the cost of a ticket. Looks like there will be music, a bounce house and all types of food!

Also it looks like The Art Store is having a big garage sale through Sunday!

On Sunday there’s a fun spring art market, 11-5, in Valley Junction that’s free to attend and will have lots of fun stuff to see and do!

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.

    Thanks Courtney for the information. It’s a fact that you keep us aware of the different news and events. It is a great job from your side to keep us informed. I hope you participated in any one of the events. It was a good job to raise money for the foundation and help those in need. Bye and have a great week ahead.
