Title Tennants Confectionary
Description TENNANTS CONFECTIONERY Reva Tennant Jensen Senior Division Second Place Short Story it is rewarding and refreshing lo drive down Main Street in Manti, to listen to the silent echoes coming from the pine trees, the old church lower, the walls of the dear old library, the mountain stream that used to flow back of Tennants Confectionery. There is a melancholy reflection in the waters that bounce over the many pebbles and brush. The echo ringing in the air brings voices from one's youth from across the school ground. "Hi! I'll meet you after the last class at Tennants-- Be there!" "Hi! Be in the second booth at Tennants at 8.-30. I have a surprise for you." (He was going to ask her to marry him.) "Hi! This is Geneva at the switchboard. Please send up a hamburger and a chocolate sundae-and charge it. Oh, please hurry, I'm starving." "Hi! Mable. I hear you are going to marry the new doctor in town. You have been caught flirting!" "Say, let us go see Aunt Maggie. I have a big problem. Aunt Maggie over at Tennants is always so helpful. She helps all the kids with problems." Yes, one thing for sure. Tennants Confectionery was the gathering place for the young and the old. As you entered the door facing West Main Street, the show case at the right was filled with a variety of chocolates, caramel, black walnut, vanilla, chocolate covered cherries. On the shelves in the back of the counter, fancy jars were filled with jelly beans, conference drops, red pepper chews, and gum drops, not to mention peanuts, walnuts, bonbon drops and licorice. Uncle Ell, everyone called him Uncle Ell, his full name being Alexander Tennant Jr., was the owner, manager, frycook, and ice cream maker-always ready to give a helping hand and greet everyone with a smile. Aunt Lucy, his wife, made the chili, the buns, the pies and had time to sing in the church choir. Carol and Maggie were the bright spots behind each counter, serving the best chocolate ice cream sodas and malted milks one could ever imagine!!! 19
