Grand re-Opening 2011
The Grand re-Opening started at noon on Friday, July 1st, as planned. We continued through Sunday, as planned, then opened Monday, July 4th, mainly because we still had food to serve, the balloons out front were still inflated, the red/white/blue flowers were still blooming, and we had a little bit of energy left.
The refreshments were great and lasted Sat-Mon. If you've recently been to the Farmer's Market in Town Center on Wednesday or Saturday, you have undoubtedly sampled some of Roger' s Real Homemade Hummus. Roger Brownfield makes nine flavors of Hummus, plus a variety of other organic and healthful delights. Roger also does baked goods, ethnic deserts, and small event catering. We left the refreshments entirely in his hands and they turned out even better than expected - carrot cake muffins, two kinds of chocolate chip cookies, two kinds of meatballs, hummus, and some little sausages wrapped in bacon ... yum!
On Saturday, Linda Bassett came up from Pell City and displayed her pottery on our front porch. Lots of beautiful things to see and buy. Click her name on the menus to see her work.
We had visitors sign our guest book all 3 days, then held a drawing at 3:00 on Sunday to give away the beautiful original Joyce Hoffman painting Sunflowers of Mentone, shown above. The winner was Valinda Miracle from Valley Head, Alabama, and we awarded $5 coupons to the rest of the entrants.
Below are some photos of the festivities and related stuff.
