Hoosier Storytellers: Shoup’s Country Foods- A Family Legacy

Hoosier Storytellers: Shoup’s Country Foods– A Family Legacy

Hoosier Storytellers is back!

Our first in-person Hoosier Storytellers event of 2022 is coming up soon! We are excited to hear the story behind the local, women-owned, and family-run business of Shoup’s Country Foods. This free, all-ages event is scheduled for Tuesday, March 15, 6–7 p.m.   

Join Moderator Michael Clossin in the Skanta Theatre for a conversation with members of the Shoup family about the history of the company and its ever-evolving offerings. You can expect to hear more about their current operations, getting through Covid, and what it has been like working at the Super Bowl for the past 11 years.

March is Women’s History Month! It is an honor to shine the spotlight on a group of local, successful female entrepreneurs. You do not need to register for this event. The library will record this conversation and archive it on the library’s website, myfcpl.org/podcasts.  Everyone is welcome to join us in Harry’s Coffee Bar for a cup of coffee and additional conversation after the event.  Learn more about Shoup’s Country Foods and shop from their website by clicking here.

Looking forward, the next Hoosier Storyteller event will feature author and historian Glory-June Greiff. On Friday, May 13, she will share her knowledge about the history and creation of the Indiana State Parks. Also, she will give details about the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). Copies of her book, “People, Parks, and Perceptions” will be available for purchase and to have signed after the presentation.
