Finding Howie


Hello Barry County residents, it is Flexfab’s 60th anniversary, and we’d love to invite you to celebrate with us! In an attempt to bring together the community we are so proud to be a part of, Flexfab will be hosting the Finding Howie Challenge. We have lost one of our hoses, named Howie, in Hastings and we need your help to find it! But don’t think your hard work will go unnoticed, there is a reward out for finding Howie. The first person to find Howie each day will be rewarded with 60 Barry Bucks. You weren’t the first person to find Howie? Well, no problem! Everyone who posts a picture with Howie gets entered in a raffle to win a 55” TV. The Finding Howie Challenge will run from Monday, August 2nd to Friday, August 6th with Howie hidden in a new location each day. Make sure to follow our Facebook page @FlexfabLLC to receive the daily hints and clues leading towards Howie’s hiding spot!


Our goal is to have fun with the community to celebrate 60 years of business in Barry County. We hope it is fun for you and your family! We will try to judge everything fairly, but please remember this is about having fun in the community. Thanks for helping us achieve that goal!
