  1. this is so wonderful that they have reused this historical building for such a worthy purpose. your whole family must be so happy and proud. and your grandfather would be too. now they just need to start a visiting/foster pet program there for the people who move in )

  2. I remember coming to Columbia City from South Carolina to visit my Uncle Roy and Aunt Edna, and my cousins, Shirley, Sarah and Susie, when I was a little girl. We got a grand tour of the Blue Bell Plant. When we got to the cafeteria, we got free ice cream! My Uncle Roy was exceptional. He loved Blue Bell and the people who worked there and they loved him back. He would be ecstatic over the building being used again and for such a wonderful purpose.
