Letter to the Editor – Spring 2023

“Due to Dubit’s” 

“Thank you for the article on Max and Judy Vander Pol. Dubits was important to so many Central College students.

My wife and I met at Central in 1969 and married in 1971. Arriving back in Pella, we needed to find jobs to pay our $80/month rent. Max and Judy hired us. Charlene waited tables on Friday nights, and I made pizzas and washed dishes in the kitchen. 

On Saturday night, I drove the delivery van and, after getting off work from the movie theater, she would ride shotgun.

I always wanted to thank them once again. These were some of the best and most fun times of our lives. Weve been married 51 years now and still try to find a way to make grinders that taste like Dubits!”
