Fellow Carwash Professionals:
It’s hard to believe that we are in the final months of 2019. I hope this year has been a prosperous and productive one for your business. The Carwash Association of Pennsylvania had one of our most active years yet, adding new events and new members along the way.
On September 19, CAP hosted its annual golf outing and member picnic at the Cumberland Valley Golf Course in Carlisle. We had a strong turnout of golfers – and the great weather may have a helped a bit with this. Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors and in-kind donors, CAP’s biggest fundraising event of the year was a success and every golfer left with a prize, including one very lucky winner of a Yeti cooler.
In October at the annual Chamber of the Northern Poconos dinner, The Car Wash on RT6, owned and operated by CAP Treasurer Dave Edwards, was recognized for their environmentally conscious efforts with the Green Business Award for its 80% water recycling and reuse, LED lighting with respect lowering energy consumption, and the use of tank-less hot water, amongst many good environmental practices. We offer Dave our sincerest congratulations!
On a more somber note, it is with great respect that we remember William “Billy” Simpson, a Veteran of the Korean War who passed away on July 14, 2019. Billy was a Purple Heart recipient, good conduct medal, combat infantry badge, United Nations service medal, and Korean service medal with two bronze battle stars. After retirement, Billy enjoyed working for the Bubbleworks Car Wash, of Washington, PA for 21 years, and was a contact of CAP Board Member, Alec Hedman. We are very grateful for his military service and his contribution to the car wash industry.
As our busy year comes to a close, I want to again thank each and every member of CAP – and our carwash community as a whole. You are a part of what makes this industry special. I would be remiss if I didn’t welcome you to learn more about CAP and our membership benefits by visiting www.pacarwash.org. We would love to have you be a part of our continued growth in 2020.
Regards and best wishes,
President, Carwash Association of Pennsylvania
