The Hub Carwash & Diner
Rep: Diane McCreery, Owner
The Hub Car Wash and Diner is a family owned and operated business.
We began operation in October of 2002. The Hub is a multi-faceted
operation. We also have a detail shop and a gift shop.
The Hub is located one block east of Centennial and Garden of the
Gods, at 4460 Forest Hills Rd. Our hours of operation are
Monday through Saturday from 8 am to 5 pm. Beginning Sunday,
April 18th, we will be open on Sundays.
The car wash is full service and is called a cloth wash.
We were the first car wash in Colorado Springs to reclaim our water.
80% of the water enters tanks and is filtered and reused in the
wash. Also, our cleaning products are environmentally friendly.
The detail shop offers a wide variety of seasonal and all occasion
gifts. We also have greeting cards, toys and an auto wall.
The diner has a fifties theme. We serve breakfast and lunch,
and we have a lighter fare menu for late afternoon. We also
offer daily breakfast and lunch specials. Right now the Atkins
diet is a big seller. However, our burger and fries platter
is our biggest seller. We are available for private parties.
The Hub does not have a liquor license as yet, but for a private
party you may bring your own bottle.
The Journey - Halfway
By Marti Hartman
Here we are - halfway through the 2003-2004 year.
In October, we'll have a new year, a new board, and The Journey
will start all over again.
Here's everything I know about our 2004-2005 Journey - Linda Williamson
will be our President, and that's all I know.
Linda and Sally are keeping the details of the rest of the board
nominees a secret for right now. It's driving me crazy!
And here's some of what I know about our next President.
Linda Williamson is one of the kindest-hearted women you will ever
meet; and her laugh is the MOST contagious you'll ever hear.
We shared a room in Denver at the National Convention last year.
I will never, ever tell you whether or not she snores, but
what I will tell you is when you're dead tired and ready to go to
sleep, "Linda's Little Talk Button" is ON! Linda
has more energy at midnight than most of the rest of us have at
What I found out about Linda is she's very energetic, extremely
intelligent, fair-minded, insightful, empathetic, and WISE.
I haven't told her this, but Linda has become my silent mentor -
when she's around, I do my best to sit back, listen, watch, and
learn from Linda.
Next year, we all will have the opportunity to see this beautiful
lady in action. And maybe one of the meetings will be Linda
teaching us all to Belly Dance!

Last Month's Meeting

that's what you do", "let me putt next", "yes, I need that goodie-how
much", and sounds of good food being consumed. Our program was US---34
firms participated by displaying their wares and answering questions
about their companies. Hats off to those firms!!!! We had 86 reservations
with a great turnout. Several ladies were overheard to say,
"Networking, networking and networking - that's what I like." Our
many door prizes were donated by The Corkscrew Wine Shop, Girl Scouts,
The Hub-2, Management Advantage, Orbit Promotions, Purple Mountain

EWI Leadership Conference & Annual Meeting: September 23-25,
New Orleans at the New Orleans Marriott.
It has been determined that the membership of EWI would in fact
like to have a published local directory of some sort hopefully
to be completed about mid-year, 2004. As directory chair (and
a committee of one!) for the past couple of years, I have only gathered
info. We have had no local directory published since 2001.
In order to facilitate actually publishing a directory, I will need
help. If anyone has the skills and would like to volunteer,
I would greatly appreciate it. The Board is discussing publishing
something to include photos and in a PDF file format for use in
a protected internet atmosphere. I possess NONE of the skills
necessary to accomplish this task and have no access to administrative
help! So I'm asking for volunteers to work with me. If you'd
like to help, please call me at 228-3011 or email me at email@example.com.
THANKS, Cathie John
