Mary Bailey (Donna Reed) brings three things to Bailey Park, where four-room frame houses have been constructed for immigrant families. Mary and George offer a brief speech at a doorstep, symbolically holding up a loaf of bread, a bottle of wine, and a box of salt:
Bread - that this house may never know hunger. (Pizza crust)
Salt - that life may always have flavor. (Salty toppings)
Wine - that joy and prosperity may reign forever.
To Sherry, with our hope that you make many wonderful memories in your new home!
