¨      The “Crew” that helped us moving day— City of Beloit (Lynn Miller, Click Clark, Robert Thompson and Matthew Kuiack)  Robert Davis from H & R Block, Jason Huff from Pet Connection, TJ Owen from Meyer Chiropractic and Scott Hartman.

¨      Willow Springs for allowing us to use their appliance dolly to move our 1950 International Harvester refrigerator

On Saturday, December 3, we’re participating in the Chamber’s chili cookoff! Stop by the front of Kettle for a sample of a homemade smoked brisket chili starting at 11! We’ll be serving this as our soup of the week next week, so get a sample this weekend before you get a full bowl next week!
