End of 2008 post

Have some updates and news to catch up on.

Kent Diner - The diner has been saved by Mike Zenone. Currently, Mr. Zenone has the diner is storage and has quite a task ahead of him. But we wish him well. For people not familiar with the restoration process, a diner here in NY State now open in Spencertown spent 12 years being restored. But the finished product is so worth the time spent!

Rockbridge - I got word just a few days ago that the diner in Rockbridge on US Rt 33 changed names, so I changed the website to reflect this name change.

St. Henry - The Starlite that was last an auto dealership headquarters has been moved to Pennsylvania. Dave Frew of North Manheim Township has bought the diner and moved it to the site of the former Manheim Diner on PA Rt 61. The location is south of Pottsville and near Schuylkill Haven. The diner was moved in mid December.
I noticed that I never did include this diner in my Ohio pages. So it is even more important that people know it did exist in the state of Ohio.

Grafton - I believe Nancy's Diner is open for business. I hope to check this out in the very near future.
