Car Wash A Smashing Success — And Smashes Old Record!

There was great weather for today’s Staples boys soccer car wash.

There was also construction downtown, limiting traffic near the Christ & Holy Trinity Church parking lot site.

Nonetheless, 3 shifts of Wreckers worked hard, for 6 hours. They marketed the car wash well on area streets, and sold baked goods donated by parents.

When it was all over, they made $3,219.55. That beats last year’s total of $3,020 — itself a record — by a whopping $199.55!

All 71 players in the program took a shift — a record. Seniors Graham Gudis, Josh Berman, Kenji Goto and Noah Schwaeber were there all day long — as were parents Larry Berman (coordinator), Betsy Berman, Mark and MaryGrace Gudis, Wayne Schwaeber, and Lisa and Akira Goto. Rich and Maggi Zeldes,, George and Trish Lawrence, Cliff Sirlin and Jim Daniels also did yeoman’s work.

It was a great day for the Staples boys soccer program. And some cars even left cleaner than when they arrived.
