McIntosh Appreciation Day was celebrated Friday, September 29, 2017, in Tarkio as the town’s citizens, Chamber of Commerce, Mayor, and Hy-Vee employees and past employees gathered to congratulate the man who dedicated over 40 years of service to the local store and the town itself. Mayor Tim Morehouse presented Kalvin with a “Key to the City” while over 50 people, including his family members, proudly looked on. Kalvin received hand shakes, hugs, and congratulations throughout the day Friday as Hy-Vee hosted its open house from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in his honor. Kalvin began his Hy-Vee days sorting pop bottles and then worked his way through the store as stocker, frozen food manager, shift manager, bookkeeper, produce manager, meat manager, and assistant manager, before becoming store director. He will be sorely missed in the store and in the town as he and his wife, Stephanie, will be residing in the Lake of the Ozarks area.
