PLYMOUTH âÂ Walmart in Plymouth was recently voted "Store of the Year" by the corporation's Illinois-based distribution center truck drivers. Three of the drivers visited the store Wednesday to hold a cookout for store employees as a gesture of gratitude for their hard work.
"(The award) is because of their consistent attention to detail," said one of the drivers, Steve Schlumpf. "Employees have the trailers unloaded in a timely fashion, they follow up by sweeping the trailers, and the inside of the store is always clean."
PLYMOUTH â Sometimes there is nothing like a visual example to help learning. The Plymouth High School Leaders Eliminating Alcohol and Drugs (LEAD) club hopes that will be the case Thursday.
The club will be holding a mock crash at 10 a.m. in front of the High School to be witnessed by the student body. Students, teachers, sheriffâs deputies, firefighters and emergency medical technicians will be participating in the event, which will include real wrecked automobiles, an ambulance, deputy cruisers, fire trucks and a helicopter.
PLYMOUTH â It may not have been the Panthersâ best round, but it was good enough.
NorthWoodâs top four all finished within five strokes of one another to top the field with a 171, Bremen turned in a team score of 201 to split, and John Glenn â while led by sophomore Tyler Prentkowskiâs low medalist 2-over-par 38 â finished at the bottom of the heap with a score of 212 at a three-way boys golf meet on the Black Course at Indiana National Tuesday.
