Customers Help us Celebrate 55 Years Serving the Greater Topeka Area
This year Yingling’s reached a major milestone – 55 years of service from three generations of Yinglings! To recognize this great achievement, we celebrated our emerald anniversary with the folks who made it possible – our wonderful and loyal customers!
On June 25th, we opened our facility to our customers. About 150 of you joined us for a great afternoon. We served 200 hotdogs and 100 hamburgers while enjoying great music, giveaways and a classic car show. There were games for the kids and the Topeka Fire Department stopped by to show off one of their trucks.
Our “jar” contests were pretty popular too! Congratulations to both our winners! There were 82 entries for the Money Jar contest. The guesses ranged from $3.75 to $2,001.58. The actual amount was $65.56. Ricquelle Landis was our winner with a guess of $64.50.
The Candy Jar contest had 64 entries with guesses ranging from 60 to 1,251. Francis Markham was our winner coming closest to the correct number of 456 with his guess of 465.
Our heartfelt thanks to everyone who helped make this possible:
