Remember the Willow

willow2015The high winds we had March 15th brought down our willow. Thankfully, there was little damage to the restaurant itself. Several of our customers and friends have asked us to keep them posted about the cleanup and renovation of our deck after the willow tree fell. We will begin rebuilding the arbor next week. Crowder, Banks, and Associates are working on an attractive design that will preserve and enhance the existing wisteria. https://www.facebook.com/CrowderBanksAssociates 
Some area artists have offered to create jewelry, coasters, and salad bowls from the trunk of the willow tree. Melanie Restall of Melanie’s Meadow will be handcrafting ornaments after the wood has dried. We will be selling her creations in the summer. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Melanies-Meadow/353861171358996 .
Ansel Ringler who does the cutting boards, trivets, and pizza peels we have for sale at the deli is making coasters. https://www.facebook.com/groups/180750758786144/ “I remember the willow!” will be our campaign slogan. Thank you all for the support during the cleanup and construction!
