We had a wonderful time. Our 90 year old friend, Ruth, was the center of attention. She is the great granddaughter of Elizabeth Thorn(statue0, at the Evergreen Cemetery.
Here, at the Tavern, we met with Linda Oatman High, the author of "The Cemetery Keepers of Gettysburg". Linda had 3 extra friends that came in at the last minute. Lauren, and the waiters downstairs immediately took over, and put 7 of us around a 4 top table as it was the only place. We did it! It was crowded, but Michael, our waiter took it with a grain of salt. The old Tavern atmosphere served our purpose well. The food was great, the conversation exciting as Linda was able to meet her Ruth, which connected her writing as a grander purpose.
We then met Lauren, the Hostess, upstairs for photos and chatting, You see, when I emailed Dobbin House firstly, to get reservations, I mentioned the story that Ruth is connected to, and the fact that she is 90 yrs old. Lauren phoned me to make sure Ruth could get down the old stone steps! No worries, Lauren, Ruth just bought a new car! They really take care of their patrons there.
