Darrell Wyrick (left) has died. He was a longtime member of the Uptown Bill's/Extend the Dream board of directors. A memorial service is being planned for June 27. In this photo from the 2011 Bill's Birthday Bash, Wyrick and others are at the coffee house listening to screenwriter Barry Morrow talk by phone about the "Bill" movies.
Over 100 people attended a memorial service at the coffee house for Terry Cunningham. He was president of the board of Uptown Bill's/Extend the Dream board of directors and a tireless advocate for abilities awareness in our community.
Tom's Guitar Show All Stars also performed at the 2015 Bill Sackter Birthday Bash. "Tom" is Tom Nothnagle, host of a local TV show which is broadcast once a month from the coffee house (last Tuesday, 6-7 pm),
MLK Service Day. U of Iowa students washed walls, shelved books and refreshed the Pearson's Soda Fountain Counter at the coffee house on King's birthday.

Uptown Bill's front yard got some sprucing up recently thanks to Alpha Phi Omega. Members of the U of Iowa service fraternity touched up the coffee house mural, raked leaves and painted an outdoor bench.
