Like the public library... but for tools

PGE honors us with a Grant!

bob weber's mugWe have Bob Weber, a SEPTL Board member and PGE retiree, to thank for this.

You know Bob as the volunteer who’s at SEPTL helping you just about every Tuesday evening. He’s also a Board Member, the Recording Secretary for all the Board meetings and does a large share of the tool repairs.

Well, PGE has recognized just how valuable Bob is to us and how valuable we are to the community! They’ve notified us that through Bob’s ongoing efforts we’ve just won a much needed and much appreciated $400 cash grant.

Here’s a snip of their letter:

Next time you run into Bob, give him a big hug. Okay maybe not a hug, but a big thanks. He’s earned it.
