JOE-LEE’S CROSSWINDS CAFÉ was the location for a Shiawassee Regional Chamber of Commerce ribbon-cutting event on Saturday afternoon, Sept. 21. Joe-Lee’s is located at the Owosso Community Airport at 208 Airport Drive. The café, which opened a few weeks ago, is owned and operated by Joe Voelker and Lee Ann French. The two are employed in other positions, but are also operating the local restaurant, both as a business and a means to help various nonprofit groups, establishing the café as a go-to for local people and also pilots flying in from throughout the state.
Business hours are Friday from 4 to 9 p.m. for Mexican Night and Saturday/Sunday from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The ribbon-cutting event was held on the airport side of the café, during a special Alzheimer’s Awareness Aviation Day, which brought in a large crowd of visitors for good food, fun activities and to support awareness of the disease.
