We have been recovering from an amazing weekend. The encouragement, participation, and enjoyment from our community was stunning.
It started on Friday with a visit from members of the Delta County Chamber of Commerce. Dennis LaMarche showed us the ropes (or the ribbons, as it were), and we got to meet a number of inspirational characters from the business community.
On Saturday we opened shop to the sounds of the Red House Ramblers, the premier dixieland band in town. Pearson Asbestos graciously halted the demolition of 910 Ludington in order to hear them better.
Throughout the day we enjoyed coffee from UP North Roast and cupcakes from Tiny Kitchen Cupcakes. If you noticed more than icing on the faces of our youngest visitors, that was the work of face-painting-extraordinaire Beth Peterson over in our new children's section.
In the afternoon, Bay de Noc Strings christened our new upstairs space, where we look forward to hosting musical events, children's programs, and book clubs in the future.
We could go on and on about how grateful we are to Dana from Snowbound Books for stopping by to support us, or how amazing Brad and Cindy Bender are for the long hours they put in working on renovations, or how much we love our customers and community, but I think I'll just have to spread that out in the months and years ahead.
In the meantime, enjoy these photos and come visit us at the store! We are glad to be here.
