Photo of the Day: Nov. 22, 2016 – Old Mission General Store


The Old Mission General Store will always have a special place in my heart. I grew up just down the road from the store (to the right of this picture), and have so many childhood memories wrapped up in this store, from getting candy out of Bob DeVol’s “penny candy box” he kept under the counter to catching the school bus there.

The day after my son, Will, graduated from high school, he went down to the store and got a job there, where he worked for several years with the current owners, Jim and Marcy Richards. Long live the Old Mission General Store!

A lifelong resident of the Old Mission Peninsula, Jane grew up on a cherry farm (Johnson Farms), married the boy next door (Tim Boursaw), and raised two kids there (Will and Marissa). Her 35-year career as a photojournalist includes bylines with the New York Times and Ladies' Home Journal, and interviews with Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts. But she loves writing about the OMP most of all.
