You Know You’re from Lapeer If…
Good old Lapeer, home of what use to be the oldest operating courthouse in Michigan, a few pro athletes, and well a bunch of farm land. For those who were born and raised (or spent the majority of you life) in Lapeer, we know a few different things that many “outsiders” or people who just moved there recently don’t know. So, You know you’re from Lapeer if…
…you still call Lapeer Wine & Spirits – Hoyt’s Wine & Spirits.
…you remember where Maryland fried Chicken was located.
…you remember the A&W on M-24.
…when Meijer was farmland.
…you remember sneaking into the old Oakdale mental buildings at night.
…you got your ice cream at Baskin Robins downtown.
…you bought your cassettes or records at Hole in the Wall.
…you partied in the State Game Area.
…you went mud bogging in the “Hog Backs”
…you remember when the Pix Theater played movies.
…you spent your weekends “cruising” downtown.
…after the last day of school you went to Crampton Park for the shaving cream fights.
…you went sledding at the Water Tower.
…you went shopping and got a fountain drink at McCrory’s.
…you remember when the side walk sales were a fun time.
…you wait all year for Lapeer Days.
…you knew that the E.T. White building was a school, and you went there.
…you remember when there was only one McDonalds.
…you went out to eat at the Family Inn to have pizza, play video games and watch movies.
I’m sure there are a few more that I forgot, tell us what you’re thinking.
