As I reported below on my Winter Walk, the Sunshine Inn is reopening soon.
The Sunshine Inn holds many memories for our family as we grew up here in Kellogg.
One reason was Dad was employed as a bartender at the Sunshine Inn.
My memories are of going out to dinner at the Sunshine Inn, and eating in the Jackass Room, where a large picture of Noah Kellogg and his jackass hung on the wall.
One favorite treat of mine was a drink called a Shirley Temple. You would get it served in a tall glass, with a marachino cherry sticking out on top.
The drink is made up of 7-Up and grenandine syrup. At least that is the version I remember.
I always enjoyed dining at the Sunshine Inn. The owners names were Sig and Bunnie Peterson, and I think they were always good to my dad.
So, now, once it is opening again, maybe I can take my girls to the Sunshine Inn and they can have Shirley Temples with a meal while dining in the Jackass Room.
I wonder if Noah and his companion still hang on the wall?
