Junior League and BCU marketing students request your help

The Marketing Students at Briar Cliff JLSC-b.card(back)
have been working hard this year on a Marketing Plan for the Junior League of Sioux City and The Discovery Shop. As part of this research, they have put together some surveys for the public. Please use the links below and take some time to take the surveys.

Did you know that for over 40 years, The Discovery Shop has been the Junior League of Sioux City’s only fundraiser? With these funds the Junior League of Sioux City has been able to help our community with projects like Chris Larson Park, the HandsOn! Gallery at the Art Center, Cook Park, the Gateway Arches, and the all-new Playscape at the Dorothy Pecaut Nature Center, plus many more! Please stop by any time to see what’s new at The Discovery Shop! You can find more information about The Discovery Shop and also “LIKE” us on Facebook!

Each survey takes approximately 5 minutes.

St. Thomas offers ‘Hazel’s Own’ English Toffee – Available for limited time during holidays

A recipe for English toffee StThomasToffee
from a church cookbook at St. Thomas Episcopal Church has become the basis for this congregation’s latest and most successful fundraiser.

“Our little red boxes of toffee are starting to get recognized everywhere. We have invested time, energy, and money into producing a tasty confection, and we want everyone to have a chance to try it,” said Rev. Torey Lightcap, rector of St. Thomas. “It’s something we think people will really enjoy, if they haven’t already tasted it.”

“Hazel’s Own” St. Thomas’ Toffee is inspired by a parishioner who died in March 2006. Part of her legacy was a recipe for toffee that originally appeared in a church cookbook. That recipe had been made many times over by approving fans throughout the years.

The product is made to strict standards by church volunteers using both the original recipe and a few secret innovations, all of which demands specific instructions and high-quality ingredients.

“I’ve had more than my share over the past few years, and it’s always perfect,” Lightcap said. “Someone who’s bought at least twenty boxes so far said he absolutely loved it, whereas before he didn’t even like toffee!”

“Hazel’s Own” St. Thomas Toffee is available right now by the half-pound in bright red (holiday-friendly) takeout-style boxes for $10 each, and by the quarter-pound for $5. Orders are welcomed now for as long as the supply holds out. In addition to holiday snacking, it makes a great thank-you gift to employees or business colleagues.

Safe web orders may be made through the church’s web site at http://www.stthomassc.org/New_St._Thomas/Toffee.html, where customers can specify local pick-up or shipping to anywhere in the U.S. Or call 712-258-0141 to reserve your toffee, or just drop by the St. Thomas parish house at 406 12th Street 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday.

Gourmet A Go-Go has added a new menupage2
dimension to our repertoire of culinary experiences.
If you have had a chance to  experience our great food at a party, wedding or business event you know we always have something unique, healthy and to make the foodie in you smile. Old fashioned comfort food like Holly’s great meatloaf, mash potatoes and corn, or something light & quick like a wrap are always on the menu. I recommend the Oprah’s favorite: seasoned chicken breast and fresh red pepper on a crisp bed of lettuce, topped with a sweet and spicy honey curry dressing made in house. The three Ss always rank high on our list of favorites: soups, salads and sweets. Until now you could only get these great menu items if you were lucky enough to go where we catered for someone. That’s all changed as we now have a gorgeous new food truck. Look for us in the downtown Sioux City area or you can also use your phone to receive a text  #26786 Gourmet, of where we will be, what is our special that day or what soup we have that day.

And you can always request our catering using the food truck. Graduations, holiday parties, football parties, you get the idea.  See you soon in the downtown area, or at your next catered event. We do breakfast as well.
