Del Ray’s Dairy Godmother Rates Visit from President Obama
Del Ray, one of Alexandria’s favorite neighborhoods – and the place we call home – was the scene of a Presidential “drive by” on Saturday,, June 20. Yes, President Obama, accompanied by Sasha and Malia, made a stop at the Dairy Godmother much to the delight of local residents.
The President and his daughter placed their order at the counter (no special treatment here), waited patiently, posed for a few pictures, signed a few autographs and 15 minutes later headed back across the Potomac. Oh yes, they took a bag of “Puppy Pops” too for first dog Bo.
The Dairy Godmother, a Mt. Vernon Avenue fixture since 2001, is the brain child of former pastry chef and Del Ray resident Liz Davis.
Way to go Liz,
