WILMINGTON — The Rotary Club which meets at noon invited long-time friends into the room — Charles, Savannah, Ed, and others from the Damon’s/ParkVue restaurant staff — as they spent the next bit of time reminiscing on the meetings held at the location.
This was the last meeting at this location since the restaurant will be undergoing transition to a new Rooster’s Restaurant.
Acting President Dan Evers kicked it off by thanking the Damon’s staff for always taking care of the club. Whatever we needed, whenever we needed it – projector help; oops, we’re not meeting today; a need for special meals, etc. — always with a smile and always wanting to share in our celebrations and be helpful – thank you so much!
Jay Sewell, Jack Powell and Kathryn Markins also shared memories along with Gary Kersey, MadgeAnn Beam, Carl Zaycosky, Bob Schaad.
Kevin Johnson shared his appreciation not only for all the Rotary-related things that Damon’s had supported, but also that Damon’s had become a great go-to place for non-Rotary things.
Evers reflected on Wilmington and the larger community and recognized that everyone seems to pull together when they need to, and to step in to provide whatever they can, whenever and however they can to help. He said this is a special place, and Damon’s has been part of that for a long time.
Charles, for himself and on behalf of his staff, expressed thanks for our continued support. both in/during Rotary and sponsored functions, as well as visits throughout the week.
He said the support of Rotarians and the goodwill toward the restaurant and the staff did not go unnoticed and was always very much appreciated. He will not be part of the restaurant when it reopens; he will give up the daily commute from Kentucky, but he said he will miss all of us.
