 Hi this is Isaac Van Beek (former ICS student). I am working on my Eagle Scout Project. I am planning a fundraiser supper for my project. My plans are to raise money to install new granite benches in the Sioux Center Memorial Gardens in honor of all the fallen warriors.

The granite benches will be replacing the old wooden benches.

I am hosting a supper on February 20th at Central Reformed Church in Sioux Center. We will serve from 5:30- 7:30pm. It is a free will donation supper.
