To the Adirondack Journal:
I'm writing this letter tonight with tears of joy rolling down my cheeks. You see, I just got home from my grandmother’s funeral.
Many of you in town know who I'm talking about: "The Hot Dog Lady" — if you are to young to know, just ask your parents or even grandparents that played Little League when they were kids.
I’m talking about Gramma Izzy Reed.
Yes, she was my grandmother, but I had to share her for many years with all the kids in town because she loved working many nights per week at the snack stand handing out hot dogs and sodas.
For over 40 years, our family has been involved with the Little League in town whether it was playing or coaching, and I think there has always been a member of Gram’s family there.
I would like to honor Gramma Izzy by naming the snack shack in her honor.
Since I don't live in town I'm asking the people of Warrensburg to come together and honor "The Hot Dog Lady."
I would love to come home to watch my nephews and other family members playing ball and go over to “Gramma Izzy's Snack Shack” to get a hot dog and soda. If anyone else agrees, please approach any Little League board member or town board member and let them know about this idea.
Together we can get it done!
