Rosie’s Restaurant Has It All
By Cookie Steponaitis
Addison County residents have been coming to 886 Route 7 South in Middlebury for great food, friendship and breaking bread together since 1962. Rosie’s was originally known as Palmer’s Dairy Bar whose counter seated twenty six and served hamburgers, French fries and was famed for dairy products such as milk, ice cream, cottage cheese and chocolate milk.  Most business came to the windows for takeout, ice creams cones and buying gallons of local milk. Owner Bill Palmer added a small kitchen and dining room in the early 1970’s increasing seating capacity to around seventy. The business became owned in 1971 by Augi and Vera Giannetti and was opened seven days a week with both Augi or Vera working and children Denise and Victor. A fire damaged most of the restaurant in August 1974 and the Gianetti’s sold in 1975 to  Jay and Lorraine McDermott , who sold in 1978 to the  Fire & Ice Corporation. During this time frame seating went from about 70 to 120. Current owners Kevin and Marlene Cummings purchased the business in 1986 and are approaching their 30th anniversary.

For example in the past few decades chalkboards have been replaced with white boards and then eventually with Smart boards. Slide-rulers have been replaced with calculators and typewriters replaced with keyboards. Starting this coming school year at Vergennes Union High School, Google Chromebooks have been leased to the school for the next three years to be used by the middle school and high school.  [ more ]
