Mike Sutton sent this in to the Walkable Eastwood email group today. I think it’s one of the best ideas I’ve seen in a long time – giving kids the opportunity to participate in the world of work here in the community. They get to know local business people while tossing pizza dough! What could be better?
The Eastside Revival Coalition is proud to announce Put Kids To Work Day at Papa John’s, on Tuesday June 29th from 9:00 am- until about 11am. Manager and franchise owner Steve Adams came up with this idea and he and assistant manager Cathy Tillipaugh (sp) welcome Eastwood’s children to participate! 5-8 year olds (roughly) are welcome to go to Papa John’s that day, put on an apron and make pizzas for awhile. Cathy will be teaching how to fling dough in the air and catch it, while Steve will be teaching the rest of the process. On top of the experience your child/children will also receive a free lunch, a frame-worthy certificate of accomplishment, and a buy-1 get-1-free coupon for a large delivery pizza!Starting this Monday you may RSVP your child by calling Steve Adams or Cathy Tillipaugh at 463-7272. There will be allowing up to 15 children to participate, “FIRST COME FIRST SERVE”.Thank you,MikePS We are trying to get a few more James Street businesses to do this. We have plenty of ideas, but please let us know if you know of a business owner that wants to do this.
