Our annual Snowball Effect event series has concluded!
This past November kicked off our 2nd Annual Snowball Effect event series, held on the 2nd floor of the Stevens Point Area Co-op, in our retired dance hall turned office space.
Starting off the series was “Cooking With the Co-op”, featuring recipes created with ingredients that can be purchased right at the Co-op. The evening also featured a demo from Siren Shrub presented by their co-founder Mindy McCord highlighting their line of lovely sipping vinegars.
In the midst of the series we held our 2nd year of painting bowls for Empty Bowls of Portage County. A highly attended event, all bowls were donated, painted, and returned to the organization for their event. Empty Bowl’s is held every October at the Stevens Point Area Senior High School to raise awareness of hunger in Portage County. We are proud to be a part of such a worthwhile event, and, due to the popularity of the bowl painting event, we will most likely hold another bowl painting party in the fall, so keep your eyes peeled.
Also part of the series:
DIY Body Care- sugar scrubs and lip balms
Bitters Demo with Alice from Alice’s Rabbit Whole
Reading Food Labels featuring the wonderful Courtney Van Tubbergen
The Local Food Movement with a lovely panel speaking on behalf of The Local Food Fair
Garden Prep with the one and only “Garden Guru” Jason Wendt - a workshop
All seven events offered a unique representation of our wonderful and strong community. I welcome everyone to attend and look forward to the future of these events to see what amazing creative minds are here in our community. I love representing the Co-op and collaborating with Stevens Point’s finest small businesses and entrepreneurs.
