Ivy Tech Community College in Columbus will be hosting a celebration of Indiana Food & Drink later this month.
The event will feature several local food and beverage producers. Bethany Messersmith, the Ivy Tech library director, explains.
The participants will include Nichole and Derek Young from Oh Sweetie Specialty Treats, Rick Bush from Bush’s Market and Mike Spagnuolo from Bear Wallow Distillery.
The guests will take part in a panel discussion about the past, present and future of their businesses and they will also be providing samples of their products for attendees to try.
The event is part of Ivy Tech’s continuing Columbus Past, Present and Future series of events, meant to draw community interest and involvement with the campus on Central Avenue near the airport.
The free community event is sponsored by the University Library of Columbus and Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society. It will be January 31st starting at 6:30 at the Columbus Learning Center lecture hall.
