I am writing to express my appreciation to the owners of Scooters in Lake Bluff.
This past Sunday, my 80-year-old aunt, who is directionally challenged and from the southern suburbs, got lost coming to my daughter’s graduation party. She stopped at Scooters to ask for directions, but returned a short while later, unable to locate my house. When the owner’s wife, Gina, was unable to reach me by phone, she offered to drive to my house so that my aunt could follow.
When my aunt arrived at the party, she couldn’t wait to tell all the guests about the kind woman who “left her business” to drive a stranger to her destination. In this day and age, who does such a thing?
I am extremely grateful to Gina and her husband for being such “good Samaritans” to my dear aunt. I hope everyone will patronize the Scooters establishment, not only for its tasty food and decadent shakes, but for its wonderful owners, who truly go above and beyond to support their community.
I am proud to say, I don’t live in the real world, I live in Lake Bluff!
