Gil and Karen Smith were the first to open businesses in Celebration Square, a commercial center the couple is developing in Downtown Moneta. The Smiths opened Hawk's Country Store and Deli, Freckles Ice Cream Parlor and Downtown Pizzeria. They have since opened a moderately priced restaurant featuring Northern Italian fare -- Casa D'Amici, which translates to "House of Friends."
