Hopefully you have heard by now that we are painting, cleaning, building work-benches and a whole lot more. The work is a lot more fun with friends! And to make our move as quickly as possible, all Shop hours are now dedicated to this Big Move, until we get it done. My goal is that the work is completed and we’re back to regular Shop hours by March 15. I’m told that this is a bit crazy. But we’ve got big things planned for Spring, and we want to get on with it. So please, won’t you help us in our Big Move? You can join in on the fun during any Shop hours:
Monday and Thursday evenings, 6:30 – 9:00 p.m.
Sundays from 2:00-6:00 p.m.
(except the 3rd Sunday of the month. That’s when Women’s Bike Chat is meeting, to work on the Big Move, too!!!).
A big, big THANK YOU goes out to our First Congo Youth Group. They got our Painting Party, last Sunday, started off right. Thanks, you all, for spending your February meeting time with us!
First Congo as a Bicycle Friendly Business!
In January, First Congregational Church (of which Revolutions is a part) applied to get rated, by the League of American Bicyclists, as a Bicycle Friendly Business. We would join City Hall and Shelby Farms Park as the only Bicycle Friendly Businesses, in Memphis. And we would be the only church with that rating, in the whole state!
Now that we applied, you are asked to fill out a short survey about your experience of First Congo as truly friendly to bicycling. When I filled it out, I thought about all of our great offerings through Revolutions Bicycle CoOp (including parking my bike inside, during Shop hours), the rental fleet at Pilgrim House Hostel, First Congo’s new bike rack that serves the Cooper-Young Farmers’ Market, a great turn out for last Fall’s Blessing of the Bikes, and more.
Won’t you help us try for a Gold-rated Bicycle Friendly Business, by filling out this short survey? Be sure to list the “business” name as “First Congregational Church of Memphis, UCC.” Please take a moment to get your answers in, now, because it’s due by February 18th!
