Manager leaves with ‘heavy heart’

Editor, OBSERVER:

It seems like yesterday when I accepted to be the manager of the Applebee’s on Vineyard Drive. It truly has been a once-in-a-lifetime experience that I will never forget.

The people of this community have extended their open arms to me and quickly I felt like I was at home. But with a heavy heart, I sadly announce that I will be leaving and working at another Applebee’s in Williamsville.

I will never forget the friends I met here; there are so many of you who have helped me along the way and I could never have done this without you.

God bless, stay strong and always remember that a piece of every one of you will live forever in my heart. Thank you.

DAVID PTAK,

General manager of Applebee’s,

Dunkirk
