Roy family of Merrimack to remember their store
The famous sign atop the structure became a landmark known far and wide for its clever enticement to "Eat Here And Get Gas."
Members of the large extended Merrimack family of Roger Roy, a co-owner who died last year, will talk about the famous business and growing up in Merrimack.
In today's world, where families are much smaller and life much different from the good old days, this presentation will take us back to another era where hard work, cooperation by all and good old fashioned family values were the norm.
The store is currently the site of Pennichuck Square on Route 101-A and Naticook Road in Merrimack.
Admission is free, and guests are invited to bring along interested children who will learn a great deal about what life was like along a sleepy Amherst Street back in the day.
For further information, please call Steve Dembow, center coordinator at 429-0902.
Amazing, grace, now please stop
