• Youngville Café Update

    By Mike Kelly, Benton Co. Consul

    Youngville Café, located at Lincoln Highway and Hwy. 218, wrapped up the season with the November 14th board meeting. By all accounts, 2017 was a record-breaking year with record number of guests for lunch– including an all-time record of 124 guests in one day! Looking ahead to 2018 and beyond, we are considering some events similar to the Roll-Ins at Reed-Niland Corner. The new board of Youngville is filled and ready to take on every challenge and opportunity with vigor.The board will meet in January, February, and March signaling a commitment to assuringYoungville’s future and legacy. As chair of the newly formed membership committee, I want to personally thank the Iowa Lincoln Highway Association and members for over 20 years of support. Community support (financial and moral) is critical for Lincoln Highway landmarks to establish their standing and importance to our historic landscape. Membership rates are $10 per year or $200 for a Lifetime membership. All Life members will be recognized on our new donor board. Join the ranks of Youngville Highway Historians! You can send checks to Youngville Highway History Association PO Box 401 Newhall, IA 52315.
