In May, I had a post on about the fire on Main Street in our town. Well times are a changing. Many of you remember my mentioning that Mark Crane, who owned Mark's Pizza that was a total loss in that fire, called two of his other stores to bring pizzas for the firemen and firewomen. While the fire was burning a bunch of us were talking saying it would be nice if Mark bought the properties next to his restaurant and built something there. I don't think Mark ever heard us - but he did purchase the buildings. These buildings were torn down and Mark is going to build a Mark's Pizza Restaurant where you can go in to get take outs or go in and enjoy dinner with room for conventions, parties, receptions, etc. Also, Mark, is building a little park where people can eat outside or just sit and enjoy the park. Mark founded Mark's pizza in our town in 1982, He wanted his new restaurant where his first restaurant was, but larger so he bought the buildings. As of now, these should be cleared and the new restaurant up in three months. I thank Mark, so much, for doing this for our village. I know Palmyra means a lot to you, Mark, being the founding home of your business and you mean a lot to us for saving the part of our village, lost in the fire.
