It is said a person doesn’t miss something until it’s gone. The WVCB staff knows this all too well, since we haven’t been in our Uptown office for nearly a month. We are hard at work at our temporary office location, which couldn’t be nicer, but we are missing one thing: Visitors!
We know we are off the beaten path and not set up for company, but we sure miss the daily interaction with residents, visitors and our fellow Uptown folks. We miss chatting with our neighbors in the parking lot and getting pop-in visitors the likes of Bill Morgan with Morgan’s Treasure Fine Jewelry, artist David Myers from across the street, Debbie Bennati from A Gal Named Cinda Lou and many friends from City Hall. We even miss the fire truck sirens as they scream up West Main. We miss being steps from two great coffee shops. We miss the proximity to a variety of restaurants and a pharmacy. We miss the quick walk to the bank to make a deposit and all the smiling faces we encounter on a daily basis.
The point of sharing with you what we miss about Uptown, is to let you know what Uptown is and how it feels to be there. We know that, once repairs to our office building are finished, we will be back to enjoy Uptown once again, but what about you? Have you been Uptown lately? Have you had dinner in one of our great eateries or bought a gift for a friend in one of Uptown’s unique shops? Our candy, cookie, popcorn, ice cream and frozen custard parlors make a great outing for you and the kids. Buckeye BrewCraft and the Governor’s Smoke Shop will keep the guys busy while the ladies enjoy Deja Vu and My Cousin’s Closet. The possibilities are endless. Go ahead.
