Kimberly Shaw, a Rotterdam resident, amassed a large amount of food while trying to feed 15 hungry people on the chilly opening day. Shaw said it is a tradition to come on opening day so the weather doesn't play a large factor.
"It is history it is a part of the community and they have good food," said Shaw.
There are even people that only come out during the rainy and less sunny days, said Lansing.
"There are customers that we only see when it is raining, or when it is cold or windy, because they are smart enough to know if it is sunny out they might have to wait a half an hour for something," said Lansing. "Rainy days are a bummer, but they bring customers in too.""
