Really enjoyed the breakfast this morning (what a great community!) and supporting these businesses throughout the day!

The addition of the signs along some streets, and in front of participating stores was a nice addition. We had lunch at Stopsky's and bought a book at Island Books. Very generous of the business's to participate.

Nice to hear that the customers also have good things to say about the business event (and the breakfast). Thanks, Jerry, Connie and Ken.
