Hard to believe January is coming to an end already. Had a few really warm days last week, in the mid 50s, but now the high for today is 24 degrees. Anymore, February appears to be our worst month, and seems to always get the most snowfall.
I would like to welcome the new owners of the former Zahrli Auto Body Shop in Brussels. After almost 50 years of Jerry’s wonderful body work, he decided to retire at the end of December. We wish Jerry and wife, Judy, a wonderful retirement and thank them for their wonderful years of service. The new business will remain in its present location and will be known as K & W Collision, LLC. New owners of the body shop are Jerry’s former co-worker Kevin Kiel and also Doug Wilschetz, who has been employed there the last few years.
