So, this is the first of my blog posts. For any of you who have ever met me in person this might be hard to believe, but at first I had nothing to say. I gave it some thought though and decided to just brag on the great folks out here at Lincoln Bike Kitchen.
I mentioned in the newsletter that we had started some great new awards to thank all the hard working people who keep us going. The will be the “Eager Beaver” for those volunteers who plug holes in the operation, “Otter Excellence” for those at LBK or in the community who go above the call to help the shop or community of biking, and “The Awesome 'Possum” a yearend award for outstanding awesomeness.
I have already chosen our first two winners. Drum roll please...... Kelly Smith wins the “Otter Excellence” for his hard work in getting the parts and rims area organized so that the shop is more user friendly and efficient. Thanks to Kelly and his self-proclaimed OCD we can now find things again.
Our first “Eager Beaver” goes to Tom Winkler. He is an outstanding volunteer who does whatever he can to help out. Usually he is busy breaking down bikes to re-use and/or recycle, understanding that without those parts nothing is going to be fixed.
