We would like to thank all our friends and TOW Bar family who stopped by to help celebrate Ash’s 85th birthday on Friday, December 18th. What a surprise it was!

The outpouring of love and well wishes was overwhelming and humbling…it’s something we will never forget.

As Jeff Craig said when he came through the back door, “Where else can you walk into a crowded room and know everyone by name?!”

Best wishes for a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year to you all.

Mirnie began tending the young children of the community in kinder-garden fostering their growth while Hank, her husband, managed the Old Forge Hardware Store that offered everything from books to pots and pans, house paint, fishing rods and fix-it tools. Continue reading
