AWARD---BUT NOT MINE



Just a word of thanks to my husband. He works very hard, and is committed to running our business with Christian principles. He is a tough taskmaster, but very fair. He appreciates his customers and lets them know it. His employees respect him. He designed and built a state-of-the-art new store 7 years ago. We sell motorcycles, ATV's, and watercraft, as well as accessories. My Pop started this business over 50 years ago, selling only 1 brand, now we sell 6. Don became owner quite a few years ago, but Pop is still an integral part of the business. The plans are for Ian to come in when he completes his Master's in May.

For the last 4 years, Donald has been selected as one of the "Top 100 Dealers" in the country. He is at the convention now, and has just called me to say that he was in the top 5! That is amazing news!

God has blessed our business tremendously, and in turn, we have used our business to bless others. It has prospered through His grace, and Don, with God's help, has continued to guide it to grow and prosper even more. This is not something we take lightly. God has been very good to us and to Him goes all the glory!

"Thank-you, God." "Thank-you, Don."

That is great!! I'm so proud to be friends with the wife of such a high - caliber man!! The store looks great too.

My co-worker's husband owns a somewhat similar store, only they also sell snow blowers, etc. I guess Don wouldn't have much market for those, would he? My friend's husband isn't so sure there's much market for them up here either this year, unfortunately for him.

What an honor! As the daughter of a business owner and the wife of one, I can really respect what he does! Congratulations, Don!

Congratulations to your husband. That's quite a honor. Even more of an honor is the fact that his customers and staff respect him.

How awesome! I remember you talking about this business briefly when the B Club met in Birmingham.

CONGRATULATIONS!
Can you believe I've never been in your store? I need to make it a point to get in there.... You know, between chauffeuring the kids around!
