This weekend

We’re pleased to introduce “Montavilla Memories”, a new feature with Patricia . Learn more about her and her work in the first story here.

In the story, she makes a call to neighbors for their mementos and stories about the life and times of nearly Montavillans.

I saw this week that Lent’s Zoiglhaus Brewing Company announced that they are now serving bread from Fressen Artisan Bakery and Cafe. Fressen is a traditional German bakery, and that goes along great with Zoiglhaus’ German-style beers.

We’re working on a feature on Fressen, and it’s been fascinating learning more about the business and the tradition and history it represents. Every business and organization has a unique story, and we’re looking forward to telling more of them.
