They were served a citation for a $500 fine to be assessed each day
Springfield restaurant, Along Came Trudy
, drew large crowds in protest to the Governor Brown's recent shutdown orders. Owner Trudy Logan opened Along Came Trudy
for indoor dining against the Governor’s orders and the community came out in support.
In 1998 Trudy opened The Pump Café
where she played a huge part in the revitalization of Downtown Springfield. In 2012, Trudy opened her café and event venue, Along Came Trudy. The place provides a warm friendly place to relax, read the newspaper or a good book, work on homework or work remotely. She provides space for multiple groups including bible studies, parties, business meetings, community events and celebrations of life.
On December 4th, The Oregon Occupational Health and Safety Administration served a citation for a $500 fine to be assessed each day that she remains open. Her liquor license was suspended and her lottery contract was revoked. Trudy maintains that If she complies and closes her doors, she will have to close permanently as many other small local businesses have already done.
Trudy continues to give back to the community on a daily basis. They are taking every precaution to ensure that the facility is safe and clean, even making adjustments to help maintain clean air quality, but no amount of safety precautions seems to matter when carrying out the Governor’s orders.
Trudy intends to keep the Along Came Trudy
open Monday through Friday 7:00am to 2:00pm. They will be providing an option for dine-in (as space permits) and take out. However, she is asking for support
to pay legal fees and fines.
