For those of you who have ever phoned the Inn, you may be familiar with our greeting, “It’s a great day at Olde Square Inn!” Well, Sunday was a great day at Olde Square Inn. Many thanks to everyone who came out to take a peek into our guest rooms, enjoy a carriage ride, and spend time with us for our first-year anniversary celebration. The joint was packed!
I appreciated meeting so many area business owners and people from town who stopped in to introduce themselves, including our mayor Tim Bradley! TJ and Judy from Home Run Candies at the Corn Crib brought treats to share, as did Randy from Mount Joy Roofing (cheese and crackers, not tar and shingles, haha), while Jill with Floral Designs of Mount Joy sent over a beautiful flower arrangement. I’m sure I’m leaving out lots of gift givers, because I have a sense of having accepted many, many bottles of wine and other fine items.
Folks from my old ‘hood – the Wagner family and Keeley with Susquehanna Style Magazine – came over, and even my neighbors the Williams from my old, old neighborhood dropped in. Former fiances (okay, there’s only one), current grandkids and kids, former coworkers, former guests Bill and Jean Riggins, friends and friends’ families – they were all here! I didn’t know who to talk with next!
And again, you know I always say a girl can’t do it by herself. Thank you to Jo and Ed, Tom and Kathy, Joan, Sherry, Aimee, Eileen, Tom, Wendy, Karen, and Kerry Meyers from the the Chamber of Commerce for all your support and hard work. I could cry a little thinking of all you’ve done for me. Sniff.
