Listed among Bellevue’s most seriously damaged commercial buildings, Shoney’s Restaurant on Highway 70 South has been closed to the public since flood waters overtook it on May 1st. A popular and consistent meeting place for numerous church based, civic, political and private groups the restaurant’s temporary closure has displaced these groups, forcing them to either find alternate meeting locations, or cease meeting until the restaurant reopens.
The Bellevue Exchange Club is now meeting at Tee’s Fireside Cafe on Tuesday mornings.
The Edwin Warner Model Aviators will meet at the park Pavilion near the flying field on the second Tuesday of each month.
The status of the Bellevue Of Church Christ Thursday breakfast meeting is yet to be determined. Pastor Steve Blackman will notify members when a decision regarding the group’s new meeting place is reached.
Group coordinator Betty Hood will soon announce where the Bellevue Republican Breakfast Club will hold their June meeting.
We were unable to confirm where the River Plantation Alley Kats, Bellevue’s United Methodist Veterans Group, The Barbi Club or The Kingston Springs Seniors plan to hold their future meetings. According to the official Shoney’s Facebook page the company is planning on reopening their restaurant on Highway 70 South very soon and representatives of the Edwin Warner Model Aviators, the Bellevue Church Of Christ and the Bellevue Republican Breakfast Club, all stated that their groups will resume meeting at Shoney’s once the store is reopened.
