From the City of Havre de Grace:
Thursday September 24th representatives from Havre de Grace and Harford County visited businesses in Havre de Grace. Kicking off the morning at the Havre de Grace Decoy Museum, Patrick Sypolt, the Director of Administration, presented a plaque on behalf of Mayor Bill Martin, the Council, and most importantly from the citizens of Havre de Grace recognizing their commitment to education and preserving history.
The City continued to Desserts by Rita on Route 40 to meet with Cindy King. In Havre de Grace Cindy has been in business with her sister Rita Curry for over 15 years. Converting a once Soft Serve Ice Cream shop into a delicious bakery, creating spectacular wedding cakes. Whether a wedding cake or a cake for any special occasion, Dessert by Rita creates a centerpiece. The City recognizes that there are over 500 weddings a year held in Havre de Grace with a direct and indirect economic impact and that Dessert by Rita and Cindy King’s approach to customer service is a gem to have in Havre de Grace.
The afternoon brought Harford County and the City of Havre de Grace to Wilhelm Automotive that recently moved from a small location at the corner of Superior St to 315 S Juniata St at the old Coca Cola plant. The County Executive Barry Glassman recognized David Wilhelm’s perseverance and commitment to quality service. The increased area for vehicle bays has also allowed the number of mechanics to be hired. Mayor Bill Martin also recognized David’s commitment to community and David’s support of Ducks Unlimited, the world’s leader in wetland and waterfowl conservation. http://www.wilhelmautomotiveinc.com/
