I was at Sharps Chapel Elementary School again this morning reading to the kids during their library time. As I was leaving, I said good-bye to a friendly woman sitting at a small child’s school desk in the main lobby.

This is another story of serendipity where one interesting fact leads to a whole new adventure in pursuing local foodie history. It all starts with a punch.
