The first board meeting of 2011 was held last night. In December we said “so long” to our Treasurer for the last 3 years Ben Stuckart, who helped immeasurably bringing P2P into the shop and community space we occupy now. This meeting marked that transition as we welcomed Peter Williams to fill the role of Treasurer. We’re very lucky to have him as part of the leadership team. His deep connections in the Northwest, strong education background and love the outdoors make him an ideal person to help P2P do more in 2011.
We also welcomed Paul Dillon as our Board Member at Large. Paul brings a wealth of experience and knowledge of Spokane community issues as an aide to Jon Snyder, a strong media presence through his “Down to Earth” radio program on KYRS and passion for bicycling in Spokane. His perspective and leadership will be invaluable in the coming year.
2011 has a lot of exciting things in store for Pedals2People. We’ll be continuing with our free community bike tune-ups, offering more classes and looking to grow our volunteer base by deepening our footprint at many community events. Keep an eye on this space for opportunities as the year progresses or stop by the shop and talk to one of our awesome mechanics about ways you can get involved.
The shop is open all winter long Thursdays and Fridays from 2:00PM – 6:00PM and Saturdays from 10:00 – 6:00. Spring is coming, stop by and get that ride ready to roll!
