Family Tradition - by Mary Ann Johnson

When I was going with my husband he took me to Sammy's West Duluth for my first every pizza. My family didn't go out to eat or to Duluth. We didn't have a Cloquet Sammy's at the time. We later got our parents to like pizza and go with us. When the kids started to arrive we would call (long distances at the time) to order pizza to go, get the kids in the station wagon with pop and drive to pick up the pizza. We would then eat it on the way home. The kids always enjoyed that. When our oldest daughter moved to the east coast she looked forward to coming home for Sammy's. When they moved to the cities she would come home with a cooler and ice to pick up frozen pizzas to take home. The grandkids have always enjoyed going with us to get the pizza the same way our kids did or to go to eat at the West Duluth Sammy's. When we go there we tell the waitress to let Pam know that "the little old lady from Cloquet was there". We have grandkids from 28 to 3 years. When we take the 4 and 3 year old to Cloquet Sammy's they tease us about having the kids. When we go with out them we are told me missed them by 6 hours as that is where they like to eat lunch or they said "What no kids?" We now have twin great grandsons that are 1 year old so within the next year when they have more teeth we will be going to Sammy's with them for the fifth generation of enjoying SAMMY'S PIZZA. Keep up the good work and see you soon.
