Ruth Comer and Brad Waller of Hy-Vee were in to visit with us just after the 6:30 news about a special program for Veterans at all Hy-Vee stores. From now thru November 16th, when you make a purchase at any Hy-Vee Store or gas station, the clerk will ask you if you want to "round-up" the price to the next dollar or more. That extra money will go to three different Veteran's programs...Operation First Response, Puppy Jake Foundation or Hope For Warriors. Hy-Vee will match up to $100,000.00! Help Hy-Vee help our Veterans! There is also a FREE breakfast for all Veterans on Veteran's Day (Monday, November 11th).
Bruce Lambert of Lambert & Ewers joined us in the studio just after the 7:30 news. A big "thank-you" to Bruce for providing the turkeys for our "Turk or Tweet" contest! It's time to order your holiday hams or turkeys from Lambert & Ewers...no water added and only about half the salt...they are fabulous! They have moved from their Valley Junction location to Kaleidescope at the Hub downtown Des Moines. You can enter from the Skywalk or thru the Walnut St. doors and go to the third floor. Call 1-800-446-6999 or go to www.4hams.com to reserve your ham or turkey today! Congratulations to Tami Weeks, our final turkey winner!
