Our society is now participating in the Richie’s Express Carwash Rewards Program. We have the PayBack rewards cards available at our meetings. Each time you purchase a “Works” wash at Richie’s, have the attendant swipe the PayBack card and our society will receive $3 in donations. The cards are similar to credit cards with a barcode assigned to Larimer County Genealogical Society. This rewards card is only good on their “Works” wash.
If you purchase a “Works Wash Book” (buy 4 washes, get 1 free), the card will only be swiped at the time the book is purchased and not for using the future wash coupons in the book. This is an ongoing fundraiser for our society with the monies being earmarked for the purchase of genealogy books for both the Loveland and Fort Collins libraries. Take several cards and pass them out to family, friends, neighbors, etc.
The car wash has announced their Double Swipe Days for February which are Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, February 14th, 15th and 16th. Each member/supporter who purchases a “Works” wash on these three days earns our organization $6 when they have their Richie’s PayBack Rewards Card swiped by the attendant at the time of purchase.
The “Works” wash includes underbody wash, rust inhibitor, wheel brite and clear coat. Plus, you can use the free vacuums to clean out the inside.
Richie’s Express Carwash is located at 3141 S. College Avenue in Fort Collins on the west side of the street, across from the Foothills Fashion Mall. Turn west on Foothills Parkway from College Avenue to enter.
To obtain a Ritchie’s Rewards Payback card from our society, select our Vice President’s email and request a card with your name and complete address or attend our next general meeting.
