TFC Chapel Construction Update

The newest trailer was backed into the TFC shop last fall, but Cerwin is still waiting for the go-ahead to begin construction.

Delay in construction on the new trailer is for good reason as this will be the first in a series of Truckers’ Life Centers—chapels that will include a wellness area. TFC President and CEO Scott Weidner wants each “I” dotted and each “T” crossed before construction begins.

While Cerwin waits for word to begin construction on the next chapel, he has kept busy in the TFC shop by doing a few preliminary things on the new trailer and preparing the mobile rig for summer truck shows.

Mailings slow down nicely in January and February, giving me time to can catch up on some other things in my office – especially address changes and updates from our staff and the post office.

This is what we call partial retirement. 🙂
