Easing of COVID-19 restrictions welcomed by local restaurants

By Per Peterson

The popular Mother’s Day Buffet returned in grand fashion at The Caboose on Sunday.

The annual tradition, which was cancelled last year because of COVID-19, drew about 700 people out celebrating moms and a little bit of normalcy. Not only that, it was coming on the heels of a wedding, which played a part in keeping The Caboose staff plenty busy this past weekend.

“We couldn’t get in here until after midnight to clean and start setting everything up,” said The Caboose owner Diane Fiegen. “John and Doug and I — Tam who was here until three in the morning — were here all night.”

Fiegen said not only was it was nice to be able to offer the Mother’s Day buffet this year on the business side of things, attendees were happy as well.

“People we very appreciative to have something to come to again,” she said. “It was an amazing day, it really was. People were so happy to be out and about and be amongst other people.”
