I would like to thank the community for all the support and for welcoming us with open arms, the Main Street organization in every effort they have given to help make our business successful and bringing in our customers, but most importantly I would like to thank God for giving us all the strength, knowledge and the ability to move forward in our lives with this business. I fully believe this business is ordained by Him.

I would also like to thank my brother-in-law and sister-in-law for helping me to help obtain the bar that we had wanted for the Whistle Stop Coffee Shop. They spent a whole day helping me put it together.  

My sons have been a huge help by putting in the effort that they have and anyone else that helped with this process. Without it we would not have made it.

I would also like to thank my loving husband, his support and willingness to help is a blessing. Without him I wouldn't have been able to do this.

Thank you everyone for your prayers and generosity. It has been a huge help to me and my business.  

Thank you and God bless,

Julia Ponder
