What a day!

Gosh - Time flies.  Has it really been 14 years since I opened The Garden Gate - and 2 years for The Alfresco Art Center?

I know it has, but when you say it out loud it's only then, it starts to sink in.

Today was a great day not just for my business but for my hometown.

Fox 2 News "In You Neighborhood" was airing live from Granite City.

It gives you a warm and fuzzy feeling when you see other people appreciating something that's near and dear to you.

Unfortunately not all of the great businesses in our community could be highlighted in this segment, as one of the crew said "There's so much here we could air 10 hours!"

So to the eclectic mix of business that make our community what is... a big thank you!

I'm thrilled I can be a small part of it!

  1. it was a big day for Granite City -- a fantastic day for our city, particularly the re-emerging downtown area to be showcased so favorably by Fox2 in the Morning Show. As Mark likes to say, Brenda -- you are the Joe Edwards of Granite City and we're so glad for your vision, style, & execution to make it happen. You have spurred many on to keep the regrowth happening.
