Elmer’s Restaurant will be missed

This week’s bouquets go to:

From Mike Olson of Escanaba:

Just a note of thanks to Elmer’s Restaurant employees and management for 33 plus years of fine food, fair prices, good company and wonderful waitstaff, cooks and more. It is true that many local folks have been there regularly for even most of those years. Hot coffee, famous sandwiches and good will always was present — with great smiles and welcoming employees. It was clear that many customers were very close to workers there. A big thanks to all there who made our days brighter, better and hopeful. Best wishes as employees find new jobs for their talents. If you hire reliable, trustworthy, caring employees, look at Elmer’s employees for your place of business. I hope not too many will retire. Thanks for it all, folks. Now I gotta find a new place to eat and be jolly.
