Rays Reminisces

Macy’s loss was Ray’s gain. Just ask Lynne Gomez, the Ray’s on The River server who is celebrating her 33rd work anniversary this month at the iconic Chattahoochee River-based seafood and steak restaurant.  If you ask her for favorite memories, the first one that comes to mind is meeting her husband (thanks to a co-worker) and getting married on a perfect blue-sky day along the river with her Ray’s family there to help celebrate. Congratulations Lynne!

The Heron and Daffodil wrought iron sculpture was fabricated by Andrew Crawford. Andrew grew up in the Riverside West neighborhood, studied at the Rhode Island School of Design, and has created ironwork, and sculptures, for private, corporate, municipal, and museum collections nationwide.
