Starke County Young Professionals

YPG group playing Elves on the Shelf in the Peppermint Parade in 2016.

The Starke County Young Professionals Group is a group that came from the Quality of Place initiative that was started through the Starke County Economic Development Foundation along with the Starke County Chamber.

The group meets once a month, usually the 3rd Wednesday of the month at a different restaurant location to help include more participants throughout the County.  The group is open to those that are not retired and may be embarqing on a new venture in life.  This group are the up and coming leaders of Starke County and meet to network with other and provide ideas and plans on what they would like to see here in Starke County that will make it a better place to live and will attract others to come to Starke County.  If you would like to join the group, please keep an eye on the WKVI calendar for their next meeting.  The group is led by Jake Lippner and Anthony Manning.  However, the group has many active participants.  Much of their focus is on the fine Arts including music, hand crafts and painting.
