Donuts and coffee all day will be priced at 1975 prices at .45 cents.

When Marge opened 40 years ago she put her children to work for $1.00 an hour.

“They had to do their homework and then wash dishes and help.  I earned 00.00 from the bakery, Marge shared.  My total sales from June to the end of the year was $6,000.00.”

Marge juggled a job at Union Bank during the day and the bakery at night.

“The flour bags made a good nap place.  I loved the children who picked out donuts with sprinkles and a toy.  Watching them all grow up has made me love my job all these past 40 years.  Now I get to enjoy their children,” she exclaimed.

So the 40th anniversary will be a time to thank her customers.  It will also be the opportunity for people to see her newly remodeled expansion.  Paul Collins’ Artwork graces the wall and there’s plenty of space in the community room.
