THIS WEEK ON WION's MORNING SHOW...

A busy week!

Our thanks to Wednesday Cohost Penny Beeman who made a special appearance to talk a bit more about this weekend's "hunger expo" which also takes place concurrently at the fairgrounds on Saturday the 18th with the 4-H "May Madness" event to get people interested in joining 4H.  There is no charge to attend the Hunger Expo, its designed to show how volunteerism can help local food pantries, and how our annual County Wide Food Drive operates, which is a partner to WION radio.  

Tuesday, Bill Lynch co-hosts, and we will talk "small town Tuesdays" plus other tidbits of information......and maybe a guest or two!  Tune in to join us.

On Wednesday, Penny brings a guest from the Civil Air Patrol to the round table.  This will be a very interesting morning, as I know very little about this very important organization, and along with me, you can learn more!  We look forward to a new guest at the Wednesday table.

The promised facebook page for Ionia's brand new "Summer in the City" celebration is up and running.  You do NOT have to be a facebook member to view this page, as it is a "fan" page available to anyone to read, just like WION's page.  Watch for more information, and you'll hear lots about this carnival and family fun weekend in downtown Ionia right here on WION!

On Friday, join us for the "round table show" from 6-9AM (EDT for those on the live stream) as we talk "Portland Block Party 2013" with Patrick Reagan and a cast of many.  Always fun when our friends from Portland visit....and always lively,  too!

There's much more to come....and of course our "usual" fun....

Stay tuned to WION.....and thanks for listening locally to America's Biggest Little Radio Station.

On the Thursday show....

Join us as we work again on the "Wake Up Call" question.

We've held it over to Thursday, after a very busy Wednesday which included Penny's information on community gardens in Ionia and Montcalm counties, the volunteer appreciation dinner, and other topics.

Also on Thursday we'll be talking with the Ionia DDA via Director Linda Curtis, and she should have some fun news of something coming to Ionia this summer. Tune-in for details on WION!  

Don't forget to get your, "Don't Think and Drive-Just LISTEN" (WION Branded)  T-shirts for $10 from Promoprint & Stitches-2 in the Armory block of Main Street, Ionia.
They look GREAT and would be fun gifts, too for anyone who you believe does too much behind the wheel with their "toys."

We'll post the results of the "PB &J" challenge between Jim Carlyle and Penny Beeman a bit later today or as soon as possible....donations end tonight at close of business downtown at Promoprint. All donations go to local food pantries. 

Our question from the wake up call held over to Thursday is the following:

"Women can do WHAT for an average of 2 and a half hours if wearing high-heels? (according to a study, of course.)

With your correct answer, win a "Burger of the Week" from the Lamplight Grill and a Large 2-item pizza from Northside Party Store & Deli, Ionia.  Out of our listening area? Win a $10 gift certificate from Amazon.com.

See you on Thursday morning!
