We went all out for Bob’s 80th birthday party on Friday, February 13. The theme was “Calling All Bobs.”

The party started at 10 a.m. with John Bennett and the Music Staff playing ragtime music on the balcony at our Whole Grain Store and Café.

Ten large chocolate sheet cakes sporting our logo on the buttercream frosting arrived shortly after. The centerpiece, though, was a huge, round four-layer cake decorated like the millstones we use to grind our grains.

Bob and Charlee arrived in “Gertrude,” Bob’s new, blue 1931 Model A Roadster.

Although the weather was gloomy, we attracted a large crowd (including two other Bob Moores) with our promise of free birthday cake, oatmeal cookies and coffee and a chance to have a picture taken with Bob. We handed out 600 white touring caps just like Bob wears, with “Bob” embroidered on the back beneath our logo.

We even won a spot on the local 5 o’clock news, and the Clackamas Review printed a nice article and photo.

Happy Birthday Bob! (It’s a bit belated). I just found your web site and love it!

Connie says:

Congratulations on your birthday and on your seemingly genuinely happy outlook on life. I’ve enjoyed reading about you and your generous gift to your employees. I think everyone dreams of a owner/boss who appreciates them. You showed the ultimate in appreciation.

You’ve reminded me why I love your products. They’re obviously made with love.
