Have you ever thought …

Three years ago, the Bread and Butter Bakery opened for business on the corner of Monticello and Reynolds Streets. From the day the doors opened, it offered a variety of bread and baked goods.

The challenge is how do we build on that relationship and make it even stronger. The time to act is before the crisis occurs.
