From all of us here at Ruggie's, we would like to thank you deeply for a wonderful 32 years! It has been a pleasure serving the community and we will truly miss each one of you. 


To the early risers, the baseball and soccer teams celebrating after a game, the business men and women meeting over lunch, construction crew members enjoying a break, families that shared their Saturday's with us and our retired friends that joined us daily - 

Without you we could not have done it.


Ruggie, Jill, Traci, Elvira, McKenzie, Roberto, Juan, Chuchi and the rest of the crew!
