Annual Christmas Brunch Big Success

Thanks to everyone who came out Sunday to enjoy the annual Christmas Brunch. It's great to see family and friends getting together to celebrate during the holiday season. We appreciate your support of the LPN operation. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the entire LPN staff!

LPN Gift Giving - Part III

The Iowa PGA Golf Card makes a great gift and now is available for purchase. The card provides more than $10,000 in discounts at more than 250 golf facilities in Iowa and western Illinois.
