Day 25: Pam Hammond

2 May

It takes many dedicated people for a community to thrive.   You need people to teach, civil servants to protect, and artists to inspire.  And it is equally important for the community to have strong business owners to provide jobs and bring vibrance to the town. Pam Hammond is one such business person.

Many of you may know Pam because she is the current president of the Ashland Chamber of Commerce.  I got to know Pam because our daughters are close in age and were both in a production of Annie a number of years ago at Camelot Theatre.  She and her husband Don have owned Paddington Station for nearly twenty years.  Pam and Don have worked hard to create a successful business and their success is good for all of us who live here. Many of their employees have been with them for years and, best of all, they give back to our community in countless ways.

One of my favorite times of the year is when Paddington Station hosts their annual holiday open house.  They arrange for live music, provide an array of tasty treats and host hourly prize drawings.  It is a great time to visit with old friends and get in the holiday spirit.

For Pam, I baked a Mixed Berry Lattice Top Pie.  I want to offer my sincere thanks to her for all that she does for our town.

      Thank you Ali! It was fun to make it too. I will try and figure out how to demo a crust like this. It’s a little bit of work but not hard at all.
      Love you!
