2000 Grand Marshal
This page updated: October 3, 2015.
Mary Schutte has been at Mary's Place, 2640 W. Hampden Avenue for 29 years. She worked at the breakfast and lunch cafe for 20 years before buying it. She has owned it now for 9 years, and both daughters work for her now.
Mary remembers Sheridan as an empty when she first came here. Travel was by bus and cars. Her neighbors were Harmony Market, Jim's Auction, Pistol Pete's Saloon, Day & Night Heating, and Chris Cham's Auto.
She remembers Carroll Royer, former police [commissioner] and fireman, and how hard he worked, especially during the search for Lori Polland and her kidnapper.
Otherwise city life in Sheridan is uneventful, except for the afternoon commute traffic jams during the homecoming parade.
The Schuttes live on the south end of Sheridan - her youngest daughter attended Alice Terry for kindergarten. Mary likes the small town atmosphere within a big city. She enjoys the benefits that create a pleasant community, and yet is vibrant, giving her enough business to be successful.
