Shannon: So a big day is coming up.
Sean: Yes it is, I am really excited for May the 4th.
Shannon: Yep it’s International Star Wars Day and…
Sean: … our LEGO contest.
Shannon: Well yes and…
Sean: live music.
Shannon: Yes, but not really what I was hoping you would remember.
Sean: Oh, its an anniversary.
Shannon: That’s right. Which anniversary is it?
Sean: The anniversary of the first National Association Baseball League game.
Shannon: What?
Sean: Yep, Cleveland lost to New York on May 4th, 1871. It was a 2-0 shutout.
Shannon: I was hoping you would remember the store’s anniversary. It is the 8th anniversary of the store, but even cooler than that, it’s the 100th anniversary of the soda fountain equipment which was built in 1924!
Sean: Really?
Shannon: What do you do at our board meetings?
Sean: Mostly just doodle and try and make up jokes.
Shannon just shakes her head and walks away.

So on Saturday May 4th, we will be celebrating our anniversary event with a soda counter that is turning 100. Our counter has been visited by Elvis, Guy Lombardo, Babe Ruth, Richard Nixon, and other celebrities. To celebrate we will have food on the grill, a Star Wars themed LEGO competition, kids crafts, and live music. We will still have our Tech Help Group, and Bible Study as well. Also, be sure to stop in and say ‘Hi’ to Sasha, as it will be her first day back on the soda fountain.

Since it will be International Star Wars Day, it does remind me of a few Star Wars jokes.

Q: What is R2D2 short for?
A: Because his legs aren’t very long.

Q: How is Ducktape like the Force?
A: It has a Dark Side, a Light side and it binds the galaxy together.

I Have to admit the trying to come up with Star Wars jokes can be difficult. Sometimes they seem a bit too forced!

I should take a moment and mention what we have coming up in the not too distant future:

  • Tuesday, April 30th, 7PM – 8:30PM, Bible Study ~ We are studying First and Second Corinthians. Feel free to come and join us for this study.
  • Friday, April 19th, 6:30ish – 9PM, Board Game Night ~ This has long been a tradition to come in on a Friday and have fun playing games.
  • Saturday, June 3rd, All Day, 100th Anniversary ~ One hundred years ago a soda fountain set was built that has been visited by Babe Ruth, Elvis, and Nixon. We are celebrating its history this Saturday.
  • Saturday, May 4th, 11AM – 5PM, Cookout ~ Enjoy one of our famous hamburgers, and hangout with everyone.
  • Saturday, May 4th, 11AM – Noon, Star Wars themed Lego Contest ~ Elementary age kids can compete for free for the opportunity to win prizes. Fun will be had by all.
  • Saturday, May 4th, 1PM – 3PM, Tech Help ~ We are a handful of tech heads that like technology and would like to help you with your stuff. We can help with cell phone, tablet, and computer problems/questions. We can talk with you about the latest tech like streaming TV, home security, cyber security, etc. This is all done for free, you just need to come in and ask for help. This does remind me about a stormtrooper that bought an iPhone. Apparently he couldn’t find the droid he was looking for.
  • Saturday, May 4th, 4PM, Live Music ~ Come in and join us for some live entertainment.
  • Saturday, May 4th, 7PM – 8:30PM, Bereans Group ~ This group, which is open to the public, we always discuss tough theological questions.

Now for the part everyone always asks about, the actual food! Our sandwich is a chicken, pesto, and roasted red peppers panini. Our soup is a sausage gnocchi. Our specialty ice creams are White Hhouse Cherry and Peanut Butter Cup ice cream.

Thanks and God bless
