Thank you so much, Diane. All great thoughts and I do hope everyone attending shops local. My family goes back to the 1830's when they first arrived from Germany. My grandfather worked at Illinois Glass when he was 14 and went on to own Maul's Shoes across from Young's, with my dad eventually taking over and also expanding to Iowa, where he met my mom. My dad sold the business when he started his driving school in the mid 1950's to a guy by the name of Paul, making the easy change to Paul's shoes. Lots of amazing history in Alton. Agree with you about Alton Square...ugh. Pearl Market was actual at Pearl and Central where I walked to almost every single day...sometimes twice a day, to buy small items for my mom.

One other thought and that is it for me. Growing up we had the benefit of many quality private businesses owned by Alton residents. We were believed to be one of the richest cities in America per capita. We grew it.. milled it and baked it. We enjoyed a very high quality of life. Barry Wittels father owned one. There was. Vogue, Youngs, Snyder's, LeeAnns, Morriseys shoes, Paul's fabrics, Thriffty Drug stores, Leaders, Pearl Market, Tonys the list was endless. We enjoyed the day to day interaaction with each of them. Then the Alton mall arrived and brought in chain stores and put local businesses out of business. Allton's population is half now. So perhaps remind classmates to spend local. Keep the money here because it matters. Our decisions impact others. So if the guys get together for old times...remind them to shop local. Mike Schwegel took over from his parents who owned Pearl Market on the corner of Central and Diamond. How many of us shopped there? Remind them that Mike and Monica Schwegel now run Schwegels on the corner of Ninth and Alby. MississippI Mud Pottery was founded by Brenda Fowler and Ken Barnett. It was acquired by a young couple who are master potters. Luciannas French restaurant is excellent...Antique shops...and the list goes on and on. That's all. Best to you and all your work Diana.

Diana...I know that you have worked tirelessly on the reunion...and know it will be very successful because of you. I will not be attending...and would like to make one suggestion. I know that Bluff City Grill is a very good choice...and offers excellent menu choices. My suggestion is that for those who are going on the underground railroad tour...to suggest especially to them that there three new and innovative restaurants in Alton. My Just Desserts has a new owner...the former pastry chef f for that restaurant...Yvonne Campbell. She is quickly becoming the Ben and Jerry's of cheesecakes. Her cookies are being sold at a large chain of delicatessons...and most recently Schnucks is now carrying her bagged cookies. The pandemic has hit her hard...just when she took over. She had to bake 30,000 cookies for retailers to survive a rough patch. It paid off...with local retailers selling her cookies. Then of course is the Lovett family restaurant in upper Alton that has now developed their own sauce which will be bottled. Their specialty...soul food. Then there is CiCi's Vegan which is over near the Alton mall. She needs all the business she can handle. Like Yvonne...the Lovetts this is her dream...and she just moved to a larger space...and then the pandemic hit. Her vegan menu is supposed to be outstanding. Perhaps you could write something up and distribute to classmates who will be attending. Best to you and all your hard work.
