Recently, my husband and I left St. Louis for a weekend drive in our 2005 Corvette. We were traveling along Interstate 24 and decided to travel the smaller roads and see the real Kentucky. Without the aid of a map, we just drove. After about an hour, we came across your community of Cadiz and decided to get either an ice cream cone or a cold drink and be on our way.
We drove down your Main Street and found little cafe on one of the side streets. I sat down at a table outside the shop with my cone, while my husband ventured over to your Main Street, where he found the Merchants Car Show about to begin. While admiring several of the cars, several of the gentlemen who had seen our car as we drove by asked us to join the show. He said we would, and I joined him. It was the beginning of a surreal time.
Everyone was so nice, they took the time to visit with us and made us feel as if we were natives!
Even the cub scouts/boy scouts and their parents who were helping with the show were great. We couldn’t resist buying some of the popcorn from them.
While I was waiting for Joe at the ice cream shop, two of your EMTs who were on their lunch break chatted with me. They were so nice and shared information about Cadiz. We ended up eating dinner at the same place and had a great meal at one of the 101 places you must eat at in Kentucky. We had a very lively discussion with both the help and several of the customers. They were great to talk with.
We originally came into town to get something to drink and ended up spending most of the afternoon and evening. From the staff at the cafe, the exhibiters and the gentlemen who asked Joe to display our car, the folks on Main Street, we can’t thank all the wonderful people who made us feel so at home.
We’ve been telling everyone we know what a great town you have and if they are ever in the area to make sure they stop. Thank you all for being so friendly and kind. It’s an experience we won’t soon forget.
