This Week’s Craft Talk

One day, sitting in Breakfast Club, Susanne Bonfe thought about the fact that Dick Anderson hadn’t given a Craft Talk for years. So, she asked if she could interview him to learn more about his life and business.

Dick Anderson has been a member of the Breakfast Club since the mid-90s when he was referred by his longtime friend, Bill McReavy, Sr.

Dick is the Club’s usual early bird every week and is always eager to share information about business, local sports teams, his personal baseball/softball activities, our city, our state, and just life in general. He always shows up to Breakfast Club with a big smile, gives his full attention, and is always ready to share. Dick is an expert with his knowledge, so you’ll always be SAFE. And when it comes to pricing, he’s more than fair – it’s actually a STEAL!

Fun facts he shared about himself during the interview include:

He met his wife, Gloria, on a blind date

He started his business in 1955 with a partner and $1,000 in capital

His first car was a 1950 Buick, and he’s been driving them ever since

He played on a championship team as far back as age 13

He’s won 22 World Titles in slow-pitch softball

We also appreciate his service to our Country for his time in the United States Coast Guard.

Call or e-mail Dick today to make the changes to your home and/or business interiors that you’ve been thinking about!
