Bloomfield 8th Anniversary & Hannibal Grand Opening
Over the past weekend, Dutch Country General Store humbly celebrated our Bloomfield 8th Anniversary & Hannibal Grand Opening! It was a swell occasion for all involved! We are so thankful for everyone who came out to celebrate with us at both stores and we hope you all enjoyed the festivities.
Bloomfield Location 8th Anniversary
At our Bloomfield store we celebrated October 2nd and 3rd with barnbuster deals, make it with pumpkin baking contest, live music and so much more! We offered Grand Marceline Coffee and Cocoa tasting and as always FREE ice cream. We had special samples and just for the celebration also Hershey’s Honey sticks! Let’s not forget the FREE cinnamon rolls too!
You may have seen Tom Shadonix playing the Fiddle on Saturday for patrons and employees, he sounded great and it sure was fun.
For the past few years now we have also offered our “Apple Slingshot” which is always a hit with the kiddos. Some might even say it can get competitive! We continued our tradition this year!
A big thank you to our judges for the Make it with Pumpkin baking contest! We sure tasted some delicious treats and handed out some gift cards to the store, thank you to everyone who participated.
We were also so honored to give a donation to Wreaths Across America for wreaths for fallen veterans.
The Grand Opening of the Hannibal Store
We can not thank the Hannibal community enough for everyone who came out for our official Grand Opening! There was live music, Make it with Pumpkin baking contest, live chocolate dipping demo from Piper’s Candy, FREE pie, and as with our Bloomfield location FREE coffee, and ice cream! We enjoyed traditional songs and tunes of America and the British Isles by Jake Book!
We had a tractor parade courtesy of the NROI Club. It was fun for all!
The Hannibal Trolley Company partnered with us to give free trolley rides to the public which was great since Saturday we had some rain for a good part of the day.
On Saturday we also presented Great River Honor Flight with a $1,200 donation.
Some of my great-great uncle’s actually fought in World War Two, served in World War Two and they all came home alive, so we’re all thrilled to be able to do this with the Honor Flight. This donation will be enough to send two veterans and their chaperones on the Honor Flight when it resumes.
Hannibal Ribbon Cutting
We are especially grateful to the community for coming out to celebrate with us and take part in the ribbon-cutting and yes, that’s Tom Sawyer and Becky Thatcher!”
I could go on and on about all of the fun activities we shared with customers and friends at both of our locations! Can’t wait to do it all again next year, and it will be the 1st Anniversary for the Hannibal Store, see you real soon!
