This year has been hard, as it comes to an end we find ourselves asking “What is the B&L when there are no customers and it has been closed most of the year?” Then we watched Its a Wonderful Life and the answer came during the scene when there is a run on the bank and customers want to withdraw their money from Bailey’s Building and Loan. George Bailey tells the crowd “you’re thinking of this place all wrong, as if I had the money back in a safe. Your money is in Joe’s house and in the Kennedy house and a hundred others. Now we can get through this thing all right. We’ve got to stick together though. We’ve got to have faith in each other.”
That’s the answer, the B&L is you. Even though our staff isn’t able to deliver the same great food and service your ongoing support of and faith in us is what let’s us believe in a brighter future.
So to everyone who is part of the B&L- Thank you and we look forward to celebrating together at this wonderful old Building and Loan just as soon as we are able. In the meantime we ask that you treat yourselves and others with the kindness and grace you have shown to us over the last 15 years and especially the last 9 months.
