The party started at 10 a.m. with John Bennett and the Music Staff playing ragtime music on the balcony at our Whole Grain Store and CafÃ©.
Ten large chocolate sheet cakes sporting our logo on the buttercream frosting arrived shortly after. The centerpiece, though, was a huge, round four-layer cake decorated like the millstones we use to grind our grains.
Bob and Charlee arrived in â€œGertrude,â€ Bobâ€™s new, blue 1931 Model A Roadster.
Although the weather was gloomy, we attracted a large crowd (including two other Bob Moores) with our promise of free birthday cake, oatmeal cookies and coffee and a chance to have a picture taken with Bob. We handed out 600 white touring caps just like Bob wears, with â€œBobâ€ embroidered on the back beneath our logo.
We even won a spot on the local 5 oâ€™clock news, and the Clackamas Review printed a nice article and photo. http://www.clackamasreview.com/news/story.php?story_id=123489247685665100
