1.) Opening - we will open for the season on Thursday, March 17 at 1:00. Closed on
Mondays. Weather depending, we will go to seven days late April with first Festival
Friday April 22 or 29.
2.) We hope to make our Festival Fridays even more fun & interesting, both for kids &
adults. Many positive comments about last years arts, crafts additions as it gave
parents more to do. Hopefully we can present more of a street fair atmosphere every
3.) Games & ideas - as usual your ideas are needed, always good & much appreciated.
So please send us any & all ideas. Special days, events, games for Festival Friday --
all are needed so please keep them coming.
4.) Our plans call for more off site appearances this year. We do catering, school,
business, civic events & festivals, etc. Some are private but many are open to
everyone. We will be posting these on our web site calendar so again, be sure to
check that calendar on the web site tool bar.
If you are interested in have us cater your event, simply contact us asap.
5.) A very brief word about Papa Robb. He is moving a little slower this year as he is in
early recovery stage of knee replacement surgery. All seems to be fine so far & he
looks forward to seeing you all soon.
6.) Last year we had some inquiries about possibilities of owning your own Papa Robbs;
franchises, etc. Well, we're not ready to franchise, but we are already working on a
licensing program. Hopefully this will be complete by mid April so if you have any
interest in owning your own store, stay tuned. We feel this will be the simplest way at
this stage of our business.
That's all for now, but allow us to close with this message: The Panthers are still OUR Panthers. They had a very special season. Yes it is important to KEEP POUNDING, but it is also important to KEEP THE PRIDE!
