Milano Pizza Comes to the Rescue! Carleton Place Power Outage 2015



This is Sam. Most of you know him as “the pizza guy” from Milano Pizza in Carleton Place, Ontario. I, along with many others, want to send out a great big thank you to Robert and Sam who run the Bridge Street establishment. All day Saturday during that 10 hour power outage these guys helped the public of Carleton Place as much as they could.

As Sam told me, they were running the place on batteries, but the pizza never stopped cooking, and the gas kept on running. That gas warmed up water for those who wanted tea, and for the mothers who needed baby formula heated. As a father of three, Sam was concerned about the families of Carleton Place. He and Robert did everything they could to make life easier for everyone.

There is no doubt in my mind that they are not only professionals, and provide service with a smile, but they have a heart bigger than their extra large pizzas.

Tip of the hat to Robert and Sam!

By the way I have heard rumours that the Tater Tot Poutine is to die for ūüôā

About lindaseccaspina

Linda Knight Seccaspina was born in Cowansville, Quebec about the same time as the wheel was invented and the first time she realized she could tell a tale was when she got caught passing her smutty stories around in Grade 7 at CHS by Mrs. Blinn. When Derek "Wheels" Wheeler from Degrassi Jr. High died in 2010, Linda wrote her own obituary. Some people said she should think about a career in writing obituaries. Before she laid her fingers to a keyboard, Linda owned the eclectic store Flash Cadilac and Savannah Devilles in Ottawa from 1976-1996. After writing for years about things that she cared about or pissed her off she finally found her calling. Is it sex drugs and rock n' roll you might ask? No, it is history. Seeing that her very first boyfriend in Grade 5 (who she won a Twist contest with in the 60s) is the head of the Brome Misissiquoi Historical Society and also specializes in local history back in Quebec, she finds that quite funny. She writes every single day and is also a columnist for Hometown News and Screamin's Mamas. She is a volunteer for the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum, an admin for the Lanark County Genealogical Society Facebook page, and a local guest speaker. She has been now labelled an historian by the locals which in her mind is wrong. You see she will never be like the iconic local Lanark County historian Howard Morton Brown, nor like famed local writer Mary Cook. She proudly calls herself The National Enquirer Historical writer of Lanark County, and that she can live with. Linda has been called the most stubborn woman in Lanark County, and has requested her ashes to be distributed in any Casino parking lot as close to any Wheel of Fortune machine as you can get. But since she wrote her obituary, most people assume she's already dead. Linda has published six books, "Menopausal Woman From the Corn," "Cowansville High Misremembered," "Naked Yoga, Twinkies and Celebrities," "Cancer Calls Collect," "The Tilted Kilt-Vintage Whispers of Carleton Place," and "Flashbacks of Little Miss Flash Cadilac." All are available at Amazon in paperback and Kindle. Linda's books are for sale on Amazon or at Wisteria · 62 Bridge Street · Carleton Place, Ottawa, Canada, and at the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum · 267 Edmund Street · Carleton Place, Ottawa, Canada--Appleton Museum-Mississippi Textile Mill and Mill Street Books and Heritage House Museum and The Artists Loft in Smith Falls.

      • well they were open and making pizzas, I went in only after driving by and noticing they were open. because I was cold they let me stand by the oven to keep warm. They did not have means to make coffee to go, but they made coffee for me and put it in small gravy take out containers so I could bring hot coffee home for my husband and myself with no charge for the coffee. Very pleasant staff for such a small establishment. Could not do enough for the people who did stop in.
