The Links' new executive chef, Andrew Labath, takes over the kitchen this Monday. During the transition between executive chefs these past few weeks, The Links kitchen staff has continued to provide excellent service and food. Thanks to these guys for their hard work keeping the kitchen going — Richard Holbrook, a chef who has been working in The Links kitchen for nine years; TJ Gliem, a chef who has been here two years; Shane Gliem, a chef who worked about two years and recently came back to help as needed; Christian Roberts, a chef and dishwasher the past two years; and Mitchell Wagler, a chef and dishwasher who has worked for the LPN more than a year. All of these gentlemen deserve a huge thank you for their hard work and the extra hours they've put in.
Additional kitchen staff, especially for the busy season, is being sought. If you know of anyone looking for a part-time job this summer, with a great work ethic who enjoys cooking, or would like to learn, send them our way! Part-time servers with great communication and customer service skills also are needed. Applications can be picked up at the front desk. Call 641-755-2080 with questions.
