Businesses with Unique Local Connections

Rod Howe

In December of 2016 we hosted a widely popular program on Karl Jaentsch and his Volkswagen Repair garage. Karl died in 2009 but many in the community recall him and his shop vividly.  It led to a discussion about long-time businesses in the county that folks have developed an affiliation with for any number of reasons. We would like to plan another program highlighting a business that is/was part of the community and that has/had a strong local following and connection. Please send me your recommendation for a business that we might consider for such a program (interpret "business" broadly). I look forward to your suggestions.
