Gobble, gobble, friends! Who’s ready to win a FREE turkey just for listening to the radio?

Throughout most of the month of November, when you hear “Tom the Turkey’s” gobble, that’s your cue to pick up the phone and call us! Both our radio stations, KWPC AM 860 FM 95.1 and Vintage Sound 93.1 FM, will be giving you a chance to win a free turkey just in time for Thanksgiving, thanks to our friends at Hy-Vee and Hy-Vee Mainstreet. It’s really easy; listen for the gobble, call in and guess correctly where that rascal Tom the Turkey is hiding, and you’re a winner!

We have so much fun giving away turkeys and talking to folks in and around the Muscatine area. Over the last few years, I’ve had several of my turkey winners turn around and donate them to places like MCSA, which was very cool.

Thanksgiving is by far one of my favorite holidays because it brings family together. For a lot of us, we don’t see our families as often as we’d like to. Even if you live in the same town, it can be hard to find the time between work and managing things like families, hobbies, etc.

My family will be enjoying Thanksgiving once again at Uncle Scott and Aunt Jan Mills’. I’m just shocked that they haven’t insisted I bring a turkey, since I have access to so many of them! Have no fear, friends, I can’t win a turkey since I work for the radio station, and I want you to take one home!

There are several great local organizations that will be serving people on and around Thanksgiving, so if you’re able to, please consider volunteering your time. I also know how low the supplies currently are at the Salvation Army of Muscatine, so please keep them in mind when you’re shopping. They could use our support year-round, but especially right now.

I’m thankful for the opportunities I have and the space this column provides to share things with you on a weekly basis. Here’s to a great November and a Thanksgiving to remember!
