MAYVILLE - The Mayville Tuesday Club's annual spring luncheon will be held at The Sweet Spot in Mayville on Tuesday, June 5 at 12:30 p.m., at which time installation of officers will be held as well as committee officers named. Those attending are reminded to be sure to wear any type of hat.
Darlene Wendell, owner/operator of Sweet Spot, introduced by Program Committee Chair Alice Paulus, opened the club's summer roster by talking about her decision to invest in the eatery with husband, Tim.
Wendell's Sweet Spot is "self-fulfilling" and also includes a bit of history for her. Of the larger building, she found that it was built in 1859 for $2,400 and was to be the county clerk's office. The second was built in 1894 for $800 and in 1905, both were deeded to the county. The two buildings have served a variety of uses through the years, and the Wendells are keeping them as close to the originals as possible.
"We're going to keep the marble floors and we won't let anything happen to the buildings," Darlene said.
One aspect of the shop is quite different from most - the staff is from the community and an agreed-upon rule that there will be no tipping. Instead, there is a large jar on the counter for patrons to contribute to others.
"Each month it goes to a different charity so we can help the people who need help," Darlene said. A few have been the Canine Rescue, the Love Fund andParkinson's.
