A CAR WASH IN HAYWARD FOUND SOMETHING THAT MIGHT BELONG TO ONE OF OUR MEMBERS!!!!!
This message is to notify the owner or anyone who knows the owner of a small zip open magenta book case with a bible inside!
On Friday December 2nd, I, your humble president, received a phone call from a person working at a Hutch's Car Wash in Hayward telling me that they found a bible at their establishment. The bible was in a magenta case made out of a denimish type material with a black handle and a zipper to open it.
The reason they called me was that they also found a PWU flyer inside. I went down there to see it and didn't regconize it. If this item is yours or you know who it might belong to, please call Hutch's Car Wash at 510-538-9274 or visit in person at 1367 4th Street in Hawary on the corner of 4th and A Street.
