Nick DeJesus worked on a CAT Library bike.

Ron Teodoro came to clean the facility as his weekly community service. Ron is very dependable and cordial every week, rain, sun or snow!

Lee Poole-Smith, our ace volunteer mechanic, did a million things around the shop as usual.

Anthony Buccino, a certified electrician and CAT member, installed a new receptacle over the tool bench so we can shed extra light on close work and also use hand power tools more conveniently.
