Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This was given to Mom by a former employer of the Old Bratten's Seafood Restaurant. My parents, Guy & Carol went on a date every Friday Night. They enjoyed eating at this restaurant and would often tell the children about the delicious seafood shrimp salad, pumpernickel bread and wonderful Clam Chowder. Because we had such a large family, the children would get to eat at Bratten's if that was their choice on the child's Birthday.
