Letters - Main Street Sweets

Written by Erin Olavesen. Posted in Volume 37, Issue 5 - November 5, 2016

To the Editor:

I want to thank Scot Bobo and his crew at Main Street Sweets for their commitment to our Island and our kids. Scot donates his tips each month to a different Island group. He donates his time and products to the PS/IS 217 PTA, all while sporting his 217 t-shirt. The Sweet Shop hosts an equipment exchange for baseball season. Fall Ball for those kids who didn’t get their fill of baseball in the spring is courtesy of Scot. My boys with their crumpled up dollar bills are learning about money and independence as he patiently allows them to practice ordering and paying all on their own. And as if that wasn’t enough, last Wednesday I found Main Street Sweets hosting student interns from The Child School.

Scot quietly goes about supporting our families and neighborhood, and I hope we Islanders can pay it forward, and support Main Street Sweets. I’m thankful to have that shop and Coach Scot as part of the narrative of my boys’ childhood.
