Dear Community,

It is with no small amount of thought and regret we announce the closing of The Depot effective Thanksgiving Day.

We want to thank all of you, our family, friends and the entire community we have gotten to know and call friends during this adventure for your love and support. Special thanks to our staff who have taught us the ins and outs of a restaurant.

We will continue service through Wednesday, November 24 and on Thanksgiving Day, November 25th, we would like to invite you to join us for a "Friendsgiving". We will have The Depot open starting at noon and be offering what bounty we have left in the coolers. A chance to share a meal if your family is out of town, things have changed in the last years and you might be alone, or you just need a few moments away from your house. Join us for a meal and fellowship! Watch TV, play a game of cards or just have a drink!

The "Friendsgiving" meal will be at no cost, donations to cover the food costs would be accepted but not required, drinks will be available for purchase.

Please stay tuned in 2022 as we pivot and make new plans for our venerable historic building and her next new adventure to serve our community...TBD...

Sincerely, Amy and Randy Nelson
