South Bend "Townie Pep Rally" this Saturday

NRC loves community events that bring neighbors together despite differences, and this Saturday's "South Bend Townie Pep Rally" is truly an intergenerational affair. Co-planned by DTSB's Leslie Pinson (a newer Townie who relocated to South Bend for business school) and her grandmother (an original Townie - "OT" perhaps?), the rally is intended to celebrate love for our South Bend community and neighbors. Sadly, Leslie's grandmother (pictured above) passed a few months ago while the event was being planned -- but she will be there in spirit.
And you should, too! Show your spirit by learning the Townie cheer, posing for team pictures, signing the Rally Wall and taking advantage of the various "townie" specials throughout the Market.

Saturday, October 14 at 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM
South Bend Farmer's Market Community Room
1105 Northside Blvd
