Inspire(d) 10th Anniversary Party!

Inspire(d) 10th Anniversary Party – Oct 21, 1-4 pm

Did we mention we’re celebrating our 10th year in business? (Ha, a few times, right?) We’re pretty excited to celebrate and thank you all for helping us get here. So we’re throwing a party –a farm party! Well, actually, a benefit party for some friends of ours who are opening a really neat preschool just north of Decorah: Little Farmers. 

Please come out to the Little Farmers farm to help us celebrate! 2902 US Hwy 52 (just south of Nob Hill outside of Decorah).

Enjoy music from Viroqua’s Stanton West, pumpkins and gourds, fall treats, and family fun while checking out the new school, chickens, bunnies, and more!

It’s free to attend, but we hope you’ll help us raise some funds for the non-profit preschool. But if you can’t make it to the party, don’t worry – you can still support Little Farmers through their GoFundMe page!

Like us at facebook.com/iloveinspired to stay up-to-date on all the fun things we’re adding to the party list – it’s gonna be a blast!

We’re pretty excited to have been able to make this magazine for 10 years, we we hope to keep going for decades more! We feel like there are more stories and people to write about than ever. It solidifies what we knew when we started: People are good.

Speaking of good people, we need to thank you fine folks reading these words – if it weren’t for you all – and our incredibly supportive advertisers – we couldn’t make this fine and fun publication. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Times 10… million!

In order to keep bringing Inspire(d) to the world, we’d love to know some more about you! We’re always fine-tuning our content to what our readership wants, and always helping our advertisers understand our market so they can best represent their businesses within our pages.

So: Please tell us about yourselves through our 10-Year Readership Survey here – and be entered to win some fun (but small) prizes!

What We’re Loving: Little Farmers

We’re Loving: Little Farmers Preschool and Daycare

You hear a lot about the brand-new Little Farmers Preschool and Daycare throughout this Fall 2017 issue of Inspire(d), so we figured we’d tell you about this new soon-to-be non-profit and why we love them.

For the past four years, our now five-year-old daughter, Roxie, has been going to part-time daycare with Allison and Josh Phillips right here in Decorah. Allison and I (Aryn) have known each other since we were BFFs back in fourth grade in Postville, so it was amazing to have a person I totally trust watching our Most Valuable Person. It was after Roxie started that we realized just how lucky we were, though, because Allison, with her degree in early childhood education, is a truly amazing teacher, and she and Josh, with their passion, values, and goals, are amazing care-givers. They have, without a doubt, contributed greatly to the awesomeness that is Roxie today.

That’s all background for the dream Allison and Josh are about to realize: Opening Little Farmers Preschool and Daycare, just north of Decorah on Highway 52. This farm-based program is all about letting kids be kids, learning from playing and doing and being outdoors. They’ll start teaching kids there this fall, and it’s going to be great!

We want to do everything we can to help this wonderful new facet of the Decorah community find success. We also wanted to find the perfect way to celebrate 10 years of Inspire(d), and 10 years of positive news…so we decided to do something positive! Our 10-year anniversary party, October 21, 1-4 pm, will be a fundraiser for and at Little Farmers Preschool! There will be live music by Viroqua’s Stanton West (check out his Loving here!) and family fun galore! You can read more about the party on page 14, and if you can’t make it, don’t worry – you can still support Little Farmers through their GoFundMe page: www.gofundme.com/littlefarmers. <3
