Goodbye to the Allens

This week Salem is losing one of its most bikey families.

The moving truck was parked in front over Thanksgiving weekend and it is with sadness and the warmest wishes for the future that we all say good-bye to the Allens, Jim and Stephanie and Quinn, who are relocating to Boise.

Jim has been active in the leadership of Capitol Velo and Buy Local, and was Race Director and otherwise volunteered for many of the local races.

Stephanie you will remember as a founder and former President of Friends of Salem Saturday Market (now Sustainable Salem) and from the market's Zero Waste Initiative.

And of course tons of other stuff - a blurb is not a biography, and a biography always less than a life!  

Salem will miss you lots, but Salem's loss is Boise's gain.  Bon voyage!
