Burgerville’s Chairman Tom Mears Discusses “Serve with Love” at CCHM After Hours Event

UPDATE: Due to the extreme heat, and the fact that the CCHM doesn’t have fully functioning air conditioning, this event has been cancelled for the time being. Check the museum’s Facebook page for updates.

Come to the Clark County Historical Museum on Thursday, Aug. 3, for the next Museum After Hours event: a discussion of the book “Serve with Love” by Tom Mears, Chairman of Burgerville.

When Jacob Propstra sailed to America from the Netherlands in 1914, he had no idea his humble creamery would one day inspire the Pacific Northwest institution we now know as Burgerville. After one particularly disastrous beach retreat, Tom Mears, CEO, knew the company’s mission was in trouble. In Serve with Love, Mears writes about the critical decisions Burgerville’s team took to build this mission-led business, and a number of the mistakes they made along the way.

Admission is $5 for adults, $4 for seniors, $3 for children under 18, and museum members are free. Doors will open at 5 p.m. and the discussion will start at 7 p.m. The Clark County Historical Museum is located at 1511 Main St. in downtown Vancouver. For more event information and questions, contact the museum at info@cchmuseum.org or at 360-993-5679.

Unplugged Open Mic Night at Burgerville

Do you sing, read poetry, or play the kazoo? Whatever thing you do, you’re invited to do it any time from 5 to 9 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 19, at the Salmon Creek Burgerville. It’s Unplugged Open Mic Night, a chance for the community to come together and show off their mad skillz while raising money for the Council for the Homeless. Burgerville will donate 15% of sales on Saturday night to the Housing Relief Fund to help local homeless families move into a home during the holidays.

Participants will each be given ten- to 15-minute sessions to share their talent or skill. So far, the performance line-up includes three acoustic guitarists, five vocalists, a rapper, a cellist, and a ukulele player. (Beat that for entertainment value!) For more details or to add your name to the list, contact Tony Fleck at 360-573-8223 or tonyf@burgerville.com.

If you’d like to support the cause but generally eschew the limelight, you can grab a table and some golden Yukon waffle fries to enjoy the show, come to the drive-through window during event hours, or simply stop by to make a donation. You can even donate online by clicking here. The Salmon Creek Burgerville is located at 13309 N.E. Highway 99 in Vancouver.
