I wanted to update you guys and let you know we got Cathy's Kitchen back open today 11/26/14 and with minor repairs we will stay open! We have a lot more repairs to go with the J & C BBQ and Blues location but clean up has begun. Thanks to all the volunteers who showed up to lean a helping hand and I promise you we will have this location as nice as ever when we open. Our plans is to open in March if no further delays! But once again thank you for everything! 

Also, we would like to thank all the customers, friends and family that came out to help us clean up both places. We are more than thankful and cannot tell you how much we appreciate all that you guys did today!

Today I am feeling very blessed and wanted to say thank you to everyone that has helped us alone this Journey. It was 2 years ago today when Fox 2 came to our town of Ferguson to showcase our community and they came back today and it was wonderful to see all the new businesses and the wonderful things that is going on in our hometown! I am proud to say I am from Ferguson and the future looks very bright for our town. Today was so much fun and I thank Fox 2 in the morning for a bringing some joy to the community and allowing everyone to see what our community has been doing for the last 2 years!! Thanks! Thanks! Thanks because we could not make it without you all!!! Love from the Jenkins Family!!!
