Post Falls Lunch Bunch Marks 21 Years

When Skip Hissong and the late Cliff Hayes had lunch at Pizza Hut in the spring of 1993, little did they know they were onto something big. "My wife (Jody) drove by and saw us, so she stopped and had lunch with us," Hissong said. "She said 'Some of us have to work,' and went to leave, when Cliff handed her the bill. He said, 'Here, the new person buys.' "Cliff then said, 'We've got something going here." Indeed, they did. The loose-knit group that calls themselves the Friday Lunch Bunch has been meeting each Friday at the Post Falls Pizza Hut for the past 21 years. It is inviting all alumni and friends to the Lions Club Grand Pavilion at Q'emiln Park on Friday at noon for brats and beer at an anniversary celebration. "We figure that we're 21 now, so we can have beer," Hissong said/Brian Walker, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.
