Good afternoon and happy New Years to all of the Wheelmen around the world!
I wanted to share a few familiar names with you all and let you know that Philip Eckman and Olga Eckman say Hello to all of the wheelmen family. They have not been particularly active the past few years, and I wanted to let everyone know that they are still with us.
I knew Philip in my youth through his bike shop and I was told a few years ago by 3 or 4 different people that Philip had passed on. Thankfully he has not, and he and his wife were quite excited to talk about the wheelmen, and many of the members that they knew and liked so well.
I spent the afternoon sharing many memories of Wheelmen stories. They spoke fondly of many of you. If you get a chance, drop them a line. I am sure they would love to hear from you.
They are in Colonial Heights, Virginia. If anyone would like their contact info, I can provide it, or it is in the Wheelmen Directory.
