Shop will be closed, Saturday Sept. 24th

Just a quick heads-up on a change in shop hours:
My young cousin Micah (maybe you've met that special little guy Kerby and I hang out with a lot-Charley? It's his dad!) was recently diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's disease/ALS.
A little about ALS:
ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, is a deadly illness with no known cause or cure. 
It affects the motor neurons in a person's brain and spinal cord. When the motor neurons die, the muscles waste away. Gradually, a person is robbed of the ability to walk, speak, eat, and eventually breathe. All the while, the mind remains sharp and aware of the total paralysis that is quickly setting in. Upon diagnosis, doctors give ALS patients only two to five years to live.

I will be spending time with my family on Saturday, Sept. 24th to walk in the Vancouver, WA. Walk to Defeat ALS in support of my cousin and his family, the shop will be closed all day.
If you'd like to donate or just join the team and send a message to show your support for all living with ALS, visit the page: WALK TO DEFEAT ALS! thank you!

Charley-Dude and Auntie Em in the summer sun-Go Team Micah!
