Those Carwash Blueskies


On Saturday the Owners, Employee's, and Friends of Morrow Collision Center gathered for a carwash to aid Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Lincoln. The first photo show's about half of the crew involved. We went to visit and planned on helping. And we did.
They raised over $600 for a good cause. My oldest son Dan (the one in the back) was a tireless job foreman. My youngest Tom is in the one nearest the camera.





I began to see how this was being so successful. (the getting the customers part) These folks had all been on the phone the day before. Nearly everyone who drove in had a big "Hi" for someone who was helping.







Near the end of the day my grandaughters showed up. The oldest demonstrated on Mom's wheels the proper technique for washing fine motorcars. The youngest (below) demonstrated the lesson that we all begin life with lovely skin and when we fail to take precaution with the sun and it's harmful ultra violet rays we will most assuredly lose that youthful glow so THAT'S the reason she was keeping her hat on.

It always helps car washes to have plenty of cute girls their.
Your grandkids are tops!
Car washes were one of our best fund raisers for our college business club, PBL.
The guys were better at washing, the girls drew attention to us.
On a major traffic artery, they had people waiting in line for a wash.
..
Oh yes, for a good cause a lot will pay more than the going rate for washes.

Wish I would have known. I took the van down to be washed on Saturday. Another few hundred miles and I could have had it done right.

Cliff,
I'm liking the fact that it's warm enough in Nebraska to wash a car.

I see the youngest generation has that Morrow work ethic already.
