GO DRIFTERS!!

   Sometimes a person comes along and makes a special place for themselves in your life.  Sometimes a business comes along and does the same thing for their community.  That was Bud Tressler's philosophy with his restaurant Fat Freda's and although his passing may be mourned by many members of the Colonial Beach community, for some it may be comforting to know that his wife Linda Tressler is stepping in right where her husband left off.
    This Sunday, March 15, from 1:00 to 5:00, WIN (or lose) there will be a party thrown in honor of the Colonial Beach Varsity Boys Basketball Team who seem well on their way to helping keep Colonial Beach on the map by bringing home the State title.  The gift certificates have already been written; one for each player, coach and the team's manager.  Family and friends are donating time and desserts to make the event a special one and a DJ has been hired.  “This is what its all about”, says Fat Freda's employee, Serene Dickerson, “being a part of the community”.
   All the employees of the restaurant enjoy that aspect of working at Fat Freda's “doing the extra things”.  Sharon Soaper, Elsie Balderson, Tim Olson, Karen Phelps and Serene Dickerson all say, “Go Drifters! Take us all the way, but no matter what you guys have done great.  You've done us proud.”  Fat Freda's invites fans, friends and family to join the fun on Sunday.  
   The Varsity Boys will be leaving Colonial Beach High School at 9:15 Thursday, to battle Altavista High School at the Siegel Center at VCU in Richmond.  Before leaving town, the bus will stop at the elementary school where students have made banners and signs to cheer the team on.  Then just before 9:30, the bus will come up the street towards Lenny's and make a left hand turn onto Colonial Avenue to leave town.  Everyone who is a Drifter fan is invited to join in the fun and line Colonial Avenue in the spirit of the day and root on the mighty Black and Gold Drifters.
