Wayne and Rose Stormant and their family members are not only restaurateurs but have a wealth of talent including some of Wayne’s hand made wooden boxes. They have their own sawmill and as you can see, they have made this lovely little outside seating area in one of the shortest times possible. They have served the public through the outside window while they have been closed, but this new area is adorable and makes one feel as though they are visiting one of the islands in the Bahamas, but being welcomed home..
Of course by being seated inside it felt as though we finally arrived home. Their son-in-law William Hughes, their daughter Kassie Hughes and son Ryan Stormant are again in the kitchen serving their delicious entrees. Rose and Wayne were putting on the final touches to their outdoor seating. What a delight after over two months of no Fat Belly’s. And if you have ever experienced Fat Belly’s as a regular customer or a visitor you will realize how much you have missed their delicious meals and the friendly staff, who always makes you feel like a special guest.
It was so good seeing the people we have missed and I even had an opportunity to personally thank Mike Williams of Nutrien for assisting our White Springs Fire Rescue by providing $20,000 so White Springs would have a workable new Fire Engine.Thank you Mike Williams for assisting the Town of White Springs so that we may finally have a fire engine with a pumper. And thank you Scott Gay for securing a grant for the firefighters through your business source so that they may have additional equipment they so need. We love our Firefighters and we Thank you greatly for your help.
As for the Dyes who lost their home, Mike Williams mentioned how he appreciates Sammy Dye as a friend and someone he highly respects for his work ethics. Mr. Williams among many others are contributing money to the Dyes at the Suwannee Hardware and Feed Store. Councilman Tom Moore now has a key to the community center if you need to drop off any physical donations. You will need to make arrangements with Town Hall, since Mr. Moore works during the day.
Thank you to everyone who has contributed to not only our firefighters but to a family who unfortunately lost everything in a fire. It shows what wonderful and caring businesses and people we have in the White Springs Area.
Have a safe and fun Memorial Day weekend
