Cool Spring Days

It's nice to have cool breeze outside just because it can get a bit stuffy in the office or waiting room. I'm just glad to get some proper air flow considering its only going to get hotter from here on. I will say things haven't been super busy like last week, but still enough to get some cars done. And thankfully we have a few open spots to reschedule some customers and move others up. Glad I got the chance to confirm customers too something we haven't had the chance to catch up on. Got a good amount started, but always appointment to finalize and make. 

Loving the Rain

Just a gift that keeps coming can't help but love the rain with the nice cool air. Especially with all the cars we have so it helps that it is a bit cooler to get that work going in the front end. Hope it is refreshing for the guys since it does get real hot when they have to work on the cars with the humidity and sun. Hopefully we can get all the work we can done to start anew tomorrow. We do our best to make everything go a smoothy as we can for both the customer and us. Well let get back to work and until next time. 

It's Heating Up at The Lift

Summer seems more present with it getting warmer at The Lift and seems we are skipping Spring. I noticed it would get warm in the winter when the sun was out but hope it doesn't get to bad. I love the winter so much nice and cold verse the scorching heat. It is nice to fill some air flow from the car wash side, but can only image how hot it gets in the bays. But having a great boss who looks out for everyone just is amazing. It's moments like these where I am joyful not because of the nice gesture, but the community I'm in

A Great Success

What a night it was yesterday cheers for five years was a roaring success it was really great we had a great turn out! Thanks to our generous donors we exceeded our goal! The food was amazing and although we switched locations we made it work. It was really great to just be a part of what felt like a family get together. We had such cool prizes for the raffle to so many different places from generous place and teams. Luther sponsored our event letting us keep all the donations for the Lift and the move later this year. Hope next year it gets bigger and better like The Lift is moving towards. Thank you everyone for your support and well wishes, have a wonderful weekend!

Tickets get you one beverage, substantial snacks, and the joy from supporting The Lift Garage! We hope to see your there and may you have a great rest of your day

Spring feels Refreashing

Well it definitely has been warmer and quite sunny which is always go for mood and moral. It also means that we could get rain as well which is my second favorite weather preference. My favorite part is the way it smells right after the rain just so refreshing. Although I don't like that it gets humid after when the sun comes out again. But still just enjoy how when it's raining time goes slower and appreciate the poodles. Also getting to watching the lighting/ thunder storm is an added bonus. The colors and the cozy feeling it brings everything about rain is pleasant. Looking at work we have had some pretty busy days and some slow days this week. We have been behind but glad with the slower days we have been catching up. Now to continue to do my best in these last few days at The Lift. 

One Week from Today

Lettuce celebrate! It is almost here just one week from today will our fifth year fundraising event at Summit Brewing Company May 2 from 5:00 - 8:00 PM. The last few days I have gotten the chance to really do some tedious task where I can see what I started with and see all the final product. Mainly letters but all necessary work that need to get done for the event and to give our local donors a invitation. It is exciting to see all the work that we have been doing almost coming together. Very excited to do the fundraiser just have to help finalize last minute event details. Woo!  

Today is a Day

First the weather is improving it is great to see the snow finally melting and the temperature is rising! Maybe we will get spring after all which makes feel move active here at the Lift. Things are still carrying over, but we are starting to balance it out and getting work done. Although we are running a bit slow we are doing our best with everyone. I will say today has been one of the toughest day here, but it is also a moment where I felt the most connected with my coworkers. I am glad to get this experience I do at the Lift and will carry it with me at my next service site. Hard to believe it is almost the end just two more months I'll truly will miss the Lift and those I work with

Lots of Snow

What a storm it was this Saturday with so much snow and happy that it has calmed down. Although It is still gray outside and slightly snowing it is starting to get warmer. The end of "winter" might finally begin next week hopefully. Today at the Lift things have been really busy because of the the cars from the weekend still need work. There just a lot to do and accomplish especially with our big fundraiser in just a few weeks! It has really been fun to get a chance to dip my toes if you will in fundraising and what that looks like for a non profit. Well let get through today and on to tomorrow

The Sun is Out

Well spring might be skipped this year just keeps getting colder and we have a Friday thirteen which is also is The Lift Garage's fifth birthday. To think this organization started with a single garage bay one day a week to four bays five days a week and growing still. With so much support from a verity of people help really make the Lift what it is today, thank you and may the we continue our good work and mission. Stay warm everyone  with the storm coming in and safe
